    TITLE: Dr Strangelove; Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb
    GENRE: Comedy, political satire
    CAST: Peter Sellers, George C Scott, Sterling Hayden, Keenan Wynn, Slim Pickens, James Earl Jones Peter Bull and Tracy Reed
    PLOT: In every military situation there is a contingency plan for when all goes wrong. In the case of nuclear weapons use, provisions are made to allow the execution of nuclear attack by lower echelon commanders should the leadership be wiped out. A lone Commander takes advantage of that clause in his orders and launches. Cuts to how the president deals with it and how one of the bombing crews handle it.
    RETURN ON INVESTMENT: 9 of 10; Have you ever been faced with overwhelming danger so much so that your legs get all rubbery? Many in that situation begin to giggle. It is on that giggling that Stanley Kubrick, the director and writer, bases this analysis of mutually assurred destruction. One can only laugh in the face of death and who better to deliver the punch line that begins the giggles than Sellers? With 5 mins left for destruction, Sellers as Strangelove the scientific advisor, comes up with the plan to dig a deep cave and hide there until the fallout settles in a hundred years!
    DVD BONUS: A mini biography and critique of the art of Kubrick: A making of... documentary; Advertising gallery; Split screen interviews for promotion with Sellers and Scott; A theatrical trailer.
    ADDED NOTES: This movie should be made mandatory viewing for all children around the world to assure they know the insanity of possessing or even contemplating the use of nuclear weapons.
