DR. STRANGELOVE OR: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB - 4K RESTORATIONThis release is accompanied by a new and exclusive short film: STANLEY KUBRICK CONSIDERS THE BOMBDr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964) is a BAFTA Award-winning (Best Film 1965) black comedy about a group of war-eager military men who plan a nuclear apocalypse. Through a series of military and political accidents, two psychotic generals - U.S. Air Force Commander Jack D. Ripper (Sterling Hayden) and Joint Chief of Staff “Buck” Turgidson (George C. Scott) - trigger an ingenious, irrevocable scheme to attack Russia’s strategic targets with nuclear bombs. The brains behind the scheme belong to Dr. Strangelove (Peter Sellers), a wheelchair-bound nuclear scientist who has bizarre ideas about man’s future. The President is helpless to stop the bombers, as is Captain Mandrake (also played by Sellers), the only man who can stop them... BBFC Cert: PGRuntimes:Feature: 93 MinsShort Film: 5.33 Mins
