Cold War

  Dr. Strangelove Or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb is a cold war masterpiece based on the novel Red Alert by Peter George.  The film is set at the height of the tensions between the U.S.S.R. and the United States.  It was made at a time when literally all it would take to destroy the world was one push of a button.  Coming on the heals of the Cuban Missle Crisis, the film has three main centers of action: 1) One of the B-52 Bombers,  on which a group of loyal men know they are about to start World War III; 2) Burpelson Air Force Base where Group Captain Lionel Mandrake is trying to convince everyone that the U.S. General launching the B-52 is mad and 3) The War Room where the President is trying to convince his Russian conterpart that this is all a tragic mistake.  In the end, this is one of the most poignant black commedies ever made about the farcical aspects of the military during the height of the cold war.  Starring Peter Sellers, George C. Scott and Sterling Hayden among others.  Fullscreen in black and white.  Released in 1964.  Runtime 90 minutes.
