THIS SCREENING IS FOR CARERS WITH BABIES ONLY
Through a series of military and political accidents, a psychotic general – US Air Force Commander Jack D Ripper (Sterling Hayden) – triggers an ingenious, irrevocable scheme to attack Russia's strategic targets with nuclear bombs.
The US President (Peter Sellers) and Dr Strangelove (Sellers again), a nuclear scientist with bizarre ideas about man's future, work with the Soviet premier in a desperate effort to save the world.
With Peter Sellers in fine fettle and a host of great performances, Kubrick's jet-black comedy is bitingly satirical, wacky when needed and remains a provocative watch today.
