Overview
Stanley Kubrick's celebrated black comedy classic about an "accidental" nuclear attack was nominated for four 1964 Academy Awards. Created during a time when the paranoia of the Cold War was at it's peak, the film still seems surprisingly relevant today. Convinced the Commies are polluting America's "precious bodily fluids", a crazed General orders a surprise nuclear air strike on the USSR. His aide Captain Mandrake furiously attempts to figure out a recall code to stop the bombing. Meanwhile, the U.S. President gets on the hot line to convince the drunken Soviet premier that the impending attack is a silly mistake, while the president's advisor Dr.Strangelove confirms the existence of the dreaded Doomsday Machine - a new secret Soviet retaliatory device guaranteed to end the human race once and for all!
