As we prepare for “Oppenheimer”, we revisit the comedy classic that satirized our very real fears of nuclear devastation, “Dr. Strangelove”.

Dr. Strangelove

The Spookshow Summer Disaster continues with our latest Cult Corner selection “Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb” (1964), the Cold War era black comedy classic from Stanley Kubrick starring Peter Sellers, George C. Scott & tons more.

Dr. Strangelove is a 1964 black comedy film directed, co-written, and produced by Stanley Kubrick and starring Peter Sellers in three roles, including the title character. It satirizes the Cold War fears of a nuclear conflict between the Soviet Union and the United States and is loosely based on the thriller novel Red Alert (1958) by Peter George, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Kubrick and Terry Southern.

The story concerns an unhinged United States Air Force general who orders a pre-emptive nuclear attack on the Soviet Union. It separately follows the President of the United States, his advisors, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and a Royal Air Force exchange officer as they attempt to prevent the crew of a B-52 (who were following orders from the general) from bombing the Soviet Union and starting a nuclear war.

The film is often considered one of the best comedies ever made, as well as one of the greatest films of all time.
