Abstract

Rather than amplifying Cold War fears and hysteria in the early 1960s, director Stanley Kubrick's black comedy masterpiece satirizes them. A rogue American general orders B-52s to drop an atomic bomb on the Soviet Union. Back in the Pentagon's War Room, military officials and the president work to stop nuclear annihilation by collaborating with the Soviets. Dr. Strangeglove, a wheelchair-bound scientist, advises them.
