George C. Scott steals the show as an infantile Air Force General who acts like a Looney Tunes cartoon character. And the rest of the inspired cast nails their highly original quasi-comic characters.
Every joke is a gallows joke; we're never allowed to forget that we all have an atomic noose around our necks.
I almost envy the dead viewers still unfamiliar with Dr. Strangelove , as seeing it for the first time was a mind-opening experience.
Jack D. He then seals off Burpelson to prevent a recall of the planes. Scott to take Burpelson Air Base by force and recall the planes, and gets on the hotline with the Soviet Premier.
Advising in the War Room is ex-Nazi scientist Dr. Strangelove , a grinning theoretician already fantasizing about the sexual recreation for the ruling elite in the VIP bomb shelters, where America's chosen high officials will be living for the next 93 years.
Strangelove divides its time between three main locations, each with its own deadly serious function and each overlaid with a different comedic tone.
In his locked executive office in the Alaskan Air Force Base, the sexually obsessed American General Ripper faces off with a veddy proper English officer in a farcical one-act.
Beady-eyed and intense in his anti-Communist convictions, Sterling Hayden contrasts beautifully with Seller's genial Group Captain, who can't fathom the depth of his commanding officer's madness.
The action in the B is a throwback to those gung-ho WW2 action films in which a racially and ethnically diverse attack team uses brains and guts to barrel through their suicide mission.
Even though their pilot is a cowboy clown Slim Pickens doing his only characterization, Slim Pickens they're an admirable bunch, seemingly the only humans capable of doing anything without red tape or Coca-Cola machines getting in their way.
The horror is that our heroes' mission is totally against every moral precept ever imagined. The docu feeling in the B is further amplified by the gritty newsreel-like footage of the taking of Burpelson Afb, with American troops fighting American troops.
In these were traumatic, subversive scenes. Kubrick has the audacity to place in the middle of it all a big sign that reads, 'Peace is our Profession.
The center of activities is the War Room , a Camelot-like round table of Death located in the basement of the White House.
The rational President Merkin Muffley trips over an ideological roadblock in the form of Buck Turgidson, a gum-chewing military nutcase itching to go to war and overjoyed that Jack Ripper has 'exceeded his authority.
An amateur among experts, Muffley must be shepherded through protocol by an assistant. Here's where Southern and Kubrick make their biggest points, basically asserting that a showdown with the Russkies is inevitable because the American stance is a military one -- Sac just wants the peacenik in the Oval Office to get out of their way.
The comedy is all over the place, and it's a miracle that it works. The stand-up humor on the hot line to Moscow is very much like a Bob Newhart routine.
At Burpelson, it's the Goon Show all over again. Previous looks at the Air Force's flying deterrent were enlistment booster films like Strategic Air Command.
Kubrick drove his English craftsmen to fake the entire bomber interior right down to the switches and gauges. The aerial combat is more realistic than that in escapist films, even with inadequate models used for exteriors of the jet bomber in flight.
Strangelove maintains a nervous tension between absurd comedy and morbid unease. Kubrick's main career themes -- sexual madness, treacherous technology and the folly of human planning -- come into strong relief.
We're motivated to root for the fliers that are going to destroy the world. Then we fret over the President's pitiful lack of control.
Security advisor Dr. Strangelove enters the film in the last act to serve as sort of an angel of Death.
Based loosely on Rand-corporation experts that calculated eventualities in nuclear war scenarios, Sellers' vision of Strangelove is a throwback to German Expressionism.
A Mabuse in a wheelchair, he's black-gloved like the brilliant but mad Rotwang of Metropolis. Strangelove enters like the specter of Death itself; his grin looks like a skull.
Contemplating 'megadeaths' gives him sexual pleasure. The detonation of the first bomb seems to liberate Strangelove, and he finds he can walk again.
The character is straight from the Siegfried Kracauer playbook. The evil of nuclear war has restored the representative of apocalyptic Nazi vengeance to full power.
Twenty years after his death, we all get to join Hitler in his suicide bunker. First-time viewers are usually floored by the audacious Dr.
Only the truly uninformed will not recognize baritone James Earl Jones as one of Major Kong's flight crew. Those going back for a repeated peek will derive added enjoyment from Kubrick's deft juggling of his several visual styles and his avoidance of anything that might deflate tension: we hear about the recall code being issued but are spared any view of the responsible military personnel that must have sent it.
Some of the best fun is finding details in designer Ken Adam 's impressive War Room , such as the pies already laid out in preparation for the aborted pie-fight finale.
Even better is watching the War room extras as they strain to maintain straight faces no matter how funny Sellers and Scott get; that contrast is what makes the comedy so brilliant.
Watch Peter Bull carefully. In one extended take he starts to smile at Sellers, more than once. He catches himself and then is clearly on the verge of cracking up, forcing Kubrick to cut away.
The Criterion Collection's Blu-ray of Dr. I put it up against Sony's old Blu-ray and the difference is not so great as to recommend that a trade-up is necessary.
However, it looks extremely good. The Kubrick faithful out there will be thinking, 'I must not allow a disc shelf gap. Not only do the hand-held Burpelson combat sequences approximate the look of documentary footage, a more contrasty and grainy film stock has been used.
Switching "film looks" later became a fad for directors looking to be viewed as artists. Back in the effect of imitating a news film look was quite stunning -- audiences reacted to the combat scenes as if they were real.
Even if they wangled a note from Kubrick to that effect, I still believe that the aspect ratio games were played because Kubrick was too busy to oversee new masters of his films, and Whv wanted to market them in a hurry at a minimum of cost.
That's all old news now, but there was also the interesting aspect ratio question concerning Strangelove. At least one disc iteration -- Criterion's laserdisc, I'm fairly sure -- was released in a completely un-original dual-ratio scan.
Kubrick apparently said that he preferred to see the War Room scenes at a full-frame , and so this one transfer of the film popped back and forth between ratios.
I've never heard of anything like this before or after. Criterion's British framing for this disc is correct, even though the film was probably screened at for many of its American play dates.
Criterion's new extras begin with interview featurettes with well-chosen spokespeople, like scholars Mick Broderick and Rodney Hill.
Kubrick archivist Richard Daniels ' piece is quite good, as is an examination of the film's visuals by two of the original camera crew.
The son of author Peter George gives an excellent account of his father's life and the adaptation of his novel Red Alert. George reportedly liked the notion of turning his story into a black comedy, especially when his original narrative was changed very little.
The stroke of genius was deciding that the entire subject could best be approached as a sick joke. Other extras are repeated from Sony's DVD disc of A making-of docu interviews several surviving technicians and actors, and a primer on the Cold War atom standoff goes deep into detail.
Critics Roger Ebert and Alexander Walker are also represented. Docu pieces on Peter Sellers and Kubrick appear to suffer from legal restraints disallowing the use of clips from non-Columbia sources.
The Peter Sellers show features several choice film clips from the 'fifties, including Sellers' almost perfect take on a William Conrad -like hired killer.
We're shown some stills from the legendary The Goon Show , which is not mentioned by name. It does have some nice interview input from Kubrick's partner James B.
Criterion's Curtis Tsui produced those discs as well as this one. An entertaining extra is a pair of vintage 'split screen' fake interviews with Sellers and Scott intended for publicity use.
Each actor projects his chosen PR image. They're charming, especially when Sellers takes us on a lightning tour of regional English accents.
I wonder if those distinctions have faded, 52 years later? As a pleasant surprise, Curtis Tsui has overseen the creation of a collectable, highly amusing substitute for a standard disc insert booklet.
The studio's buildings were also used as the Air Force base exterior. The film's set design was done by Ken Adam, the production designer of several James Bond films at the time he had already worked on Dr.
The black and white cinematography was by Gilbert Taylor, and the film was edited by Anthony Harvey and an uncredited Kubrick. The original musical score for the film was composed by Laurie Johnson and the special effects were by Wally Veevers.
The theme of the chorus from the bomb run scene is a modification of When Johnny Comes Marching Home. Sellers and Kubrick got on famously during the film's production and shared a love of photography.
For the War Room, Ken Adam first designed a two-level set which Kubrick initially liked, only to decide later that it was not what he wanted.
Adam next began work on the design that was used in the film, an expressionist set that was compared with The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and Fritz Lang's Metropolis.
It was an enormous concrete room feet 40 m long and feet 30 m wide, with a foot 11 m -high ceiling suggesting a bomb shelter, with a triangular shape based on Kubrick's idea that this particular shape would prove the most resistant against an explosion.
One side of the room was covered with gigantic strategic maps reflecting in a shiny black floor inspired by dance scenes in Fred Astaire films.
In the middle of the room there was a large circular table lit from above by a circle of lamps, suggesting a poker table. Kubrick insisted that the table would be covered with green baize although this could not be seen in the black and white film to reinforce the actors' impression that they are playing 'a game of poker for the fate of the world.
Moreover, each lamp in the circle of lights was carefully placed and tested until Kubrick was happy with the result.
Lacking cooperation from the Pentagon in the making of the film, the set designers reconstructed the aircraft cockpit to the best of their ability by comparing the cockpit of a B Superfortress and a single photograph of the cockpit of a B and relating this to the geometry of the B's fuselage.
The B was state-of-the-art in the s, and its cockpit was off-limits to the film crew. When some United States Air Force personnel were invited to view the reconstructed B cockpit, they said that "it was absolutely correct, even to the little black box which was the CRM.
In several shots of the B flying over the polar ice en route to Russia, the shadow of the actual camera plane, a Boeing B Flying Fortress, is visible on the icecap below.
The B was a scale model composited into the Arctic footage, which was sped up to create a sense of jet speed. Home movie footage included in Inside the Making of Dr.
Strangelove" painted over the rear entry hatch on the right side of the fuselage. Benson had access to the aerial footage filmed for the B52 sequences of Dr Strangelove, which was stored at Shepperton Studios.
The use of the footage prompted Kubrick to call Benson to complain. Red Alert was more solemn than its film version, and it did not include the character Dr.
Strangelove, though the main plot and technical elements were quite similar. A novelization of the actual film, rather than a reprint of the original novel, was published by Peter George, based on an early draft in which the narrative is bookended by the account of aliens, who, having arrived at a desolated Earth, try to piece together what has happened.
It was reissued in October by Candy Jar Books, featuring never-before-published material on Strangelove's early career.
During the filming of Dr. Strangelove, Stanley Kubrick learned that Fail Safe, a film with a similar theme, was being produced. Although Fail Safe was to be an ultrarealistic thriller, Kubrick feared that its plot resemblance would damage his film's box office potential, especially if it were released first.
Indeed, the novel Fail-Safe on which the film is based is so similar to Red Alert that Peter George sued on charges of plagiarism and settled out of court.
What worried Kubrick the most was that Fail Safe boasted the acclaimed director Sidney Lumet and the first-rate dramatic actors Henry Fonda as the American president and Walter Matthau as the advisor to the Pentagon, Professor Groeteschele.
Kubrick decided to throw a legal wrench into Fail Safe's production gears. Lumet recalled in the documentary Inside the Making of Dr. Strangelove: "We started casting.
Fonda was already set I was set, Walter was set And suddenly, this lawsuit arrived, filed by Stanley Kubrick and Columbia Pictures.
He pointed out unmistakable similarities in intentions between the characters Groeteschele and Strangelove. The plan worked, and Fail Safe opened eight months after Dr.
Strangelove, to critical acclaim but mediocre ticket sales. Ending The end of the film shows Dr. Strangelove exclaiming, "Mein Führer, I can walk!
In some shots, old warships such as the German heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen , which were used as targets, are plainly visible. In others, the smoke trails of rockets used to create a calibration backdrop can be seen.
Original ending It was originally planned for the film to end with a scene that depicted everyone in the War Room involved in a pie fight.
Accounts vary as to why the pie fight was cut. In a interview, Kubrick said, "I decided it was farce and not consistent with the satiric tone of the rest of the film.
So, as Kubrick later said, 'it was a disaster of Homeric proportions. The film was just weeks from its scheduled premiere, but because of the assassination, the release was delayed until late January , as it was felt that the public was in no mood for such a film any sooner.
During post-production, one line by Slim Pickens, "a fella could have a pretty good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff," was dubbed to change "Dallas" to "Vegas," since Dallas was where Kennedy was killed.
The original reference to Dallas survives in the English audio of the French-subtitled version of the film. The assassination also serves as another possible reason that the pie-fight scene was cut.
In the scene, after Muffley takes a pie in the face, General Turgidson exclaims: "Gentlemen! Our gallant young president has been struck down in his prime!
Rerelease in In , the film was rereleased. While the release used a 1. Strangelove takes passing shots at numerous contemporary Cold War attitudes, such as the "missile gap", but it primarily focuses its satire on the theory of mutual assured destruction MAD , in which each side is supposed to be deterred from a nuclear war by the prospect of a universal cataclysmic disaster regardless of who "won".
Military strategist and former physicist Herman Kahn, in the book On Thermonuclear War , used the theoretical example of a "doomsday machine" to illustrate the limitations of MAD, which was developed by John von Neumann.
The concept of such a machine is consistent with MAD doctrine when it is logically pursued to its conclusion.
It thus worried Kahn that the military might like the idea of a doomsday machine and build one. Kahn, a leading critic of MAD and President Eisenhower's administration's doctrine of massive retaliation upon the slightest provocation by the USSR, considered MAD to be foolish bravado, and urged America to instead plan for proportionality, and thus even a limited nuclear war.
With this logical reasoning, Kahn became one of the architects of the flexible response doctrine, which, while superficially resembling MAD, allowed for responding to a limited nuclear strike with a proportional, or calibrated, return of fire see On Escalation.
Kahn educated Kubrick on the concept of the semirealistic "cobalt-thorium G" doomsday machine, and then Kubrick used the concept for the film.
Kahn in his writings and talks would often come across as cold and calculating, for example, with his use of the term "megadeaths" and in his willingness to estimate how many human lives the United States could lose and still rebuild economically.
Kahn's cold analytical attitude towards millions of deaths is reflected in Turgidson's remark to the president about the outcome of a preemptive nuclear war: "Mr.
President, I'm not saying we wouldn't get our hair mussed. But I do say no more than ten to twenty million killed, tops, uh, depending on the breaks.
The post-hoc planning in the film, by Dr. Strangelove, done after the MAD policy has clearly broken down, to keep the human race alive and to regenerate from populations sheltered in mineshafts, is a parody of those strict adherents of the MAD doctrine who are opposed to the prior creation of fallout shelters on ideological grounds.
To such adherents, talk of survival takes the "Assured Destruction" out of "Mutual Assured Destruction", hence no preparations should be conducted for fear of "destabilizing" the MAD doctrine.
Moreover, it is also somewhat of a parody of Nelson Rockefeller, Edward Teller, Herman Kahn, and Chet Holifield's November popularization of a similar plan to spend billions of dollars on a nationwide network of highly protective concrete-lined underground fallout shelters, capable of holding millions of people and to be built before any such nuclear exchange began.
These extensive and therefore wildly expensive preparations were the fullest conceivable implementation of President Kennedy's, month prior, September advocacy in favor of the comparatively more modest, individual and community fallout shelters, as it appeared in Life magazine, which was in the context of shelters being on the minds of the public at the time due to the Berlin Crisis.
The Kennedy administration would later go on to expand the nascent United States civil defense efforts, including the assessment of millions of homes and to create a network of thousands of well known, black and yellow plaqued, community fallout shelters.
This was done, not with a massive construction effort but by the relatively cheap re-purposing of existing buildings and stocking them with CD V geiger counters etc.
In the Kennedy administration would found the American Civil Defense Association to organize this, comparatively far more cost-effective, shelter effort.
The fallout-shelter-network proposal, mentioned in the film, with its inherently high radiation protection characteristics, has similarities and contrasts to that of the very real and robust Swiss civil defense network.
Switzerland has an overcapacity of nuclear fallout shelters for the country's population size, and by law, new homes must still be built with a fallout shelter.
To refute early s novels and Hollywood films like Fail-Safe and Dr. Strangelove, which raised questions about US control over nuclear weapons, the Air Force produced a documentary film, SAC Command Post, to demonstrate its responsiveness to presidential command and its tight control over nuclear weapons.
However, later academic research into declassified documents showed that U. Sexual themes In the months following the film's release director Stanley Kubrick received a fan letter from Legrace G.
Benson of the Department of History of Art at Cornell University interpreting the film as being sexually-layered.
The director wrote back to Benson and confirmed the interpretation, "Seriously, you are the first one who seems to have noticed the sexual framework from intromission the planes going in to the last spasm Kong's ride down and detonation at target.
You have a Wargasm! The site's critical consensus reads, "Stanley Kubrick's brilliant Cold War satire remains as funny and razor-sharp today as it was in Strangelove is on Roger Ebert's list of The Great Movies, and he described it as "arguably the best political satire of the century".
All the gods before whom the America of the stolid, paranoid 50s had genuflected—the Bomb, the Pentagon, the National Security State, the President himself, Texan masculinity and the alleged Commie menace of water-fluoridation—went into the wood-chipper and never got the same respect ever again.
The Writers Guild of America ranked its screenplay the 12th best ever written. In , readers of Total Film magazine voted it the 24th greatest comedic film of all time.
This is the War Room! Kubrick had Terry Gilliam in mind to direct. The script was never completed, but index cards laying out the story's basic structure were found among Southern's papers after he died in October It was set largely in underground bunkers, where Dr.
Strangelove had taken refuge with a group of women. In , Gilliam commented, "I was told after Kubrick died—by someone who had been dealing with him—that he had been interested in trying to do another Strangelove with me directing.
I never knew about that until after he died but I would have loved to. Strangelove Movie. Create Report. Paranoid Brigadier General Jack D.
Only Ripper knows the code to recall the B bombers and he has shut down communication in and out of Burpelson as a measure to protect this attack.
Ripper's executive officer, RAF Group Captain Lionel Mandrake on exchange from Britain , who is being held at Burpelson by Ripper, believes he knows the recall codes if he can only get a message to the outside world.
Meanwhile at the Pentagon War Room, key persons including Muffley, Turgidson and nuclear scientist and adviser, a former Nazi named Dr.

It didn't take long for him to bring back stock footage in which both men were delighted to see the aircraft involved in the process suggestively "bobbing," "bumping" up and down and swaying in the air as they connect, transfer fuel and then disconnect.
The addition of the music instrumental on top heightened the intended effect, and knowing all this makes watching the opening titles quite a different experience.
Indeed, the music actually 'punctuates' the refueling rod's eventual withdrawal from the B scene. Although the film is named after him, the character of Dr.
Strangelove has the least amount of screen time of Peter Sellers ' three roles. Stanley Kubrick 's last black-and-white film.
When Slim Pickens was cast as Maj. Kong, he had never traveled outside the US in his life. Production was delayed for over a month while he applied and got a passport to travel to England to film his scenes, which were the very last ones to be shot.
Tracy Reed , the only woman seen in the film, plays Turgidson's secretary, Miss Scott, who was billed in some early advertisements as "Miss Foreign Affairs".
This was due to her also appearing as that character in the centerfold of Playboy magazine June , which is read by Maj. Kong in the cockpit.
The magazine covering her butt is "Foreign Affairs". Strangelove is said to have Americanized his name from Merkwuerdigliebe.
Columbia Pictures agreed to provide financing only if Peter Sellers played at least four major roles. In the studio's eyes, Sellers playing multiple roles was one reason Lolita was so successful.
The Soviet ambassador describes the Doomsday Machine as an array of megaton bombs covered with a special fallout-inducing material. A few years before the movie's release the Soviets produced a working megaton bomb design the "Tsar Bomba" but scaled it back to 50 megatons before testing.
Interestingly, by removing the fallout-producing uranium third stage, the scaled-back test had the lowest fallout per kiloton of explosive power.
Kubrick had Terry Gilliam in mind to direct. The script was never completed, but index cards laying out the story's basic structure were found among Southern's papers after his October death; it was set largely in underground bunkers, where Dr.
Strangelove had taken refuge with a group of women. In Gilliam commented, "I was told after Kubrick died--by someone who had been dealing with hi--that he had been interested in trying to do another 'Strangelove' with me directing.
I never knew about that until after he died but I would have loved to. A visitor to the set observed Stanley Kubrick 's total control over every aspect of the process, which, she said, the crew regarded with awe and respect rather than hostility.
She noted there was an overall atmosphere of dedication and good humour although no prankishness was evident.
The happiest moments, the ones that inspired outright laughter on the set, were when a difficult shot was achieved. When the screens in the War Room were being constructed, Stanley Kubrick asked if the rocket trajectories were accurate and was told that they were fictional.
Kubrick got the production team to inquire from their contacts in the Defense Department if they could find out the real locations of the missile silos.
After they got all the relevant info, Kubrick asked, based on the statistics they had received, where the safest place in the world would be, and he was told that it would be West Cork in Ireland.
This has often been cited as the reason why so many wealthy Europeans bought properties in the area from the mid-'60s onwards.
The War Room was inspired by Metropolis Has the longest title for a Best Picture nominee or winner, at 13 words long. As seen in the code book "today's codes", on top of the page just after the crew member finds the right codes , the action takes place on Friday, 13 September This film was selected into the National Film Registry in the first year of inductions for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
Among the titles that Stanley Kubrick considered for the film were "Dr. The plan to regenerate the human race from the people sheltered in mineshafts is a parody of Nelson Rockefeller , Edward Teller , Herman Kahn and Chester E.
Holifield 's plan to spend billions of dollars on a nationwide network of concrete-lined underground fallout shelters capable of holding millions of people.
The proposed fallout shelter network has similarities and contrasts to that of the very real and robust Swiss civil defense network.
Switzerland has an overcapacity of nuclear fallout shelters for the country's population size, and by law, new homes must still be built with a fallout shelter.
If the US did that, it would violate the spirit of MAD and destabilize the situation because the US could launch a first strike and be safe against a retaliatory second strike.
Slim Pickens , who had previously played only minor supporting and character roles, said his appearance as Maj.
Kong greatly improved his career. He later commented, "After 'Dr. Strangelove' the roles, the dressing rooms and the checks all started getting bigger.
Eisenhower before becoming America's ambassador to the United Nations , dying in office , which was his position at the time this film was made.
According to Ken Adam , the "War Room" was exaggerated in size and filmed in long shots to give a fantastic quality to the activity there, primarily the decision-making process where the power players are at considerable distances from each other.
Stanley Kubrick intended to film in the United States. Filming was moved to England's Shepperton Studio because Peter Sellers had to stay in England due to his pending divorce.
Kubrick said, in a '68 Playboy interview, that he was not "entirely assured that somewhere in the Pentagon or Red army upper echelons there does not exist the real-life prototype of General Jack D.
Peter Sellers based the voice of Dr. Strangelove on that of famed photographer Arthur 'Weegee' Fellig real name Arthur Fellig , who did still photography for the movie.
Sellers made recordings of conversations he had with Weegee so he could imitate his distinct high-pitched voice and heavy foreign accent. Lionel Mandrake was the easiest of the three for Sellers to play, as he was aided by his experience of mimicking his superiors while serving in the RAF during World War II.
The assault on Burpleson Air Force base was shot on orthochromatic film using a handheld camera that was operated much of the time by Stanley Kubrick himself, an activity rarely engaged in by feature film directors.
Stanley Kubrick sought no help from the U. Department of Defense. The flight deck of the B bomber was based on a single still shot that had been published in a British aviation magazine.
Most of the shots of the plane in flight were simulated with a ten-foot model of the plane and a moving matte image behind.
While CRM first appeared in this movie and appeared in subsequent Kubrick films as well as other films paying homage to Kubrick the designation CRM is actually utilized in the book Red Alert, upon which Strangelove is based and which preceded the film.
Stanley Kubrick chose Ken Adam as production designer after having been impressed with his work on Dr.
No Over ten miles of electrical cable was required to light up the giant screen in the War Room set.
The character of Maj. Johnston was the chief test pilot for Bell Aircraft and Boeing in the s and s.
Like Kong, he regularly flew wearing cowboy boots and a Stetson. While working for Boeing, he piloted the first flight of the Boeing B Stratofortress, the same plane his fictional counterpart piloted in this film.
Johnston was perhaps best known for his demonstration flight of the Dash, prototype for the Boeing , over Lake Washington during the Gold Cup Hydroplane Races.
He was scheduled to perform a simple flyover. Instead, he performed a double barrel roll, leading many in the crowd--including Boeing president Bill Allen--to believe the plane was out of control and about to crash.
The same year that this film premiered, Johnston was promoted to manage the Boeing Atlantic Test Center. One of the projects he worked on there was the development of the Minute Man missile.
The illuminated symbols on the War Room map displays were cutouts lit by individual floodlights behind them. They generated so much heat that the display was damaged.
Air-conditioning had to be installed. According to some accounts, Peter Sellers was also invited to play the part of Gen.
Buck Turgidson, but turned it down because it was too physically demanding. The score for the B scenes is mostly "Johnny, I Hardly Knew Ye", a traditional Irish anti-war song that tells the story of a broken, heavily mutilated soldier coming back from war.
Among the people on whom Dr. Strangelove is based is the Mathematician John von Neumann some of whose work on game theory might suggest that the way to win the cold war was with a preventative war.
He was consulted by Truman and Eisenhower on nuclear war strategy. He was also instrumental in the development of the modern computer.
Toward the end of his life, he was confined to a wheelchair. He probably did not wear a single black glove.
At around the minute mark, Gen. Turgidson explains that they have determined there are around 17, three-letter code combinations possible for the prefix they would need to send to get a message through.
That's correct; there are 17, assuming two- and three-letter repeats are allowed AAB and AAA, respectively, for example. He then says it will take about 2.
That works out to an attempt lasting ten seconds each. The photographic mural in Gen. Ripper's office is actually a view of Heathrow Airport in London, England.
When the B is making its final run on the target, a brief image of a radar screen is shown. The source of the radar beam is emanating 'generally' from the Clyde River, Nunavut, Canada-region, hundreds of miles from the 'suggested' Novaya Zemlya Island, Russian-region.
At one stage during filming, Sellers was in one of his more negative moods. To this end, he locked himself away in the bathroom of his dressing room and broke down in tears.
One of the film crew managed to persuade him to return to the set. In Jonathan Swift 's novel 'Gulliver's Travels', Laputa is a place inhabited by caricatures of scientific researchers.
It's also a play on words: "la puta" is Spanish slang for "prostitute. Turgidson George C. It is possible that the character Colonel 'Bat' Guano may have been loosely based on the general, Matthew Ridgway.
He was famous for having two grenades on his fatigues in order to show his troops he was a fighter too. It was said that his aides-de-camp may have give him neutralized grenades in order to avoid unexpected accident.
The ending in the novel was similar to the novel and movie Fail Safe Author Peter George detested the conversion of his book to a satire, but wrote a tie-in novelization of the film anyway.
The favorite film of film critic Gene Siskel. Peter Sellers had a formidable talent for replicating and sometimes inventing or combining dialects, accents, and speech patterns.
Those abilities were amply demonstrated in the many characters he played in Dr. For his performance of the title character, Sellers combined a German accent with the speech patterns of legendary photographer and photojournalist Weegie a pseudonym for Arthur Fellig , who had worked with director Stanley Kubrick and was frequently on the set of Dr.
Sellers confirmed this during a television interview with Steve Allen. Peter Sellers was actually going to play Major Kong, but he broke his leg on the bomb.
Two years earlier, Stanley Kubrick directed Lolita The graffiti on the second bomb is "Dear John". Slim Pickens once owned a horse named Dear John.
Some of the Air Force stock footage of mid-air refueling seen in the opening credit sequence also appears in other films including in color Santa Claus Conquers the Martians The bomber scenes, shot in an area not much bigger than a closet, were very tightly framed to emphasize the claustrophobic cramped space and filmed with available lighting only.
This was the final collaboration between Stanley Kubrick and his producing partner James B. Harris was involved in the early development stage of this production but left to begin his own directing career.
It was during this stage that, according to Harris, Kubrick began to toy with the idea of turning "Strangelove" into a comedy.
The German word "Gemeinschaft" means "A spontaneously arising organic social relationship characterized by strong reciprocal bonds of sentiment and kinship within a common tradition".
In this context the discussion of the post-apocalypse society living in mine shafts at the end of the film presents an interesting double-entendre.
Strangelove's remarks about the participants in the new society spontaneously accepting new social norms and having "bold curiosity for the adventure ahead" is especially germane.
Also, Gen. Turgidson's admonition to "not allow a mineshaft gap" at the end is a particularly vivid pun. In the War Room scenes, Gen. Turgidson and the Air Force general seated next to him both wear wings of the lowest Air Force aeronautical rating "pilot".
Although it is possible nowadays, in the era in which the film was made it is highly unlikely that a senior Air Force general and the apparent Air Force Chief of Staff would have any aeronautical rating lower than "command pilot" wings with a star and a wreath , which required 15 years as a rated pilot and a minimum of 3, flight hours.
The film was made and released about six years after its source novel "Red Alert" by Peter George had been first published in In an original script draft, Dr.
Strangelove is referred to as Von Klutz. The sets occupied three main sound stages: the Pentagon War Room, the B Stratofortress bomber and the last one containing both the motel room and Gen.
Ripper's office and outside corridor. The background footage for the model B is filmed from a Boeing BG, whose shadow can be seen on the ground.
Laurie Johnson's musical score - primarily a tense, epic arrangement of "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" - begins 10 minutes into the movie.
At this point Major Kong takes off his helmet and dons his cowboy hat, signaling the beginning of the bombing mission. The tune continues relentlessly throughout the B scenes and is the only incidental music in the film.
In fact, other than the opening credits, a brief snatch of big band music on a radio, and "We'll Meet Again" at the finale there is no other music in the film.
The emotional effect is to make the B scenes seem heroic - an ironic framing of a mission that will end with the destruction of all life on Earth.
Sharp-eyed moviegoers may notice a strong resemblance between Dr. Strangelove's war room and its re-creations in the nuclear war themed comic book films Watchmen and X-Men: First Class The voice Peter Sellers uses for Dr.
