First Friday Film Series presents: Dr. Strangelove, or How I stopped Worrying and Learned to Love the Bomb

Friday Jul 1, 2016, 7:30 p.m.

Monthly series: 1st Friday of every month. Free and open to public.

General Buck Turgidson. President Merkin Muffley. Brigadier General Jack D. Ripper. Greatest menagerie of names since Charles Dickens. The blackest of black comedies, Stanley Kubrick’s 1964 masterpiece of cold war surrealism is beautiful, terrifying, and hilarious. Peter Sellers plays three characters in the film, including the titular Dr. Strangelove.

When a rogue U.S. general in charge of nuclear weapons forces the Soviets to admit to having built a “doomsday machine” the gathered military experts in the war room (“Gentlemen! You can’t fight in here, this is the War Room!”) speculate wildly about a mineshaft gap which might allow the other side to “win”. In between bouts of reflexive Nazi Salutes, Strangelove explains how they will have to have a 10:1 ratio of the most attractive females to repopulate the earth after 93 years, when it is safe to emerge from the mines. George C. Scott, Slim Pickens, and a young James Earl Jones play singularly unforgettable characters. Shot in stark and gorgeous black and white, this classic satire uses humor and exageration to highlight the most ridiculous tropes of the peak of the cold war.

So put on your flight suit, watch out for the fluoridated water, and run through your checklist as you come join us for Dr. Strangelove, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb at the First Friday Films at the Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Library on Friday July 1.
