Double Feature: DR. STRANGELOVE OR: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB, 1964, Sony Repertory, 93 min. Dir. Stanley Kubrick. A gallery of unforgettable comic grotesques, including Sterling Hayden’s fluoride-hating general, George C. Scott’s oversexed Commie-killer, and the brilliant Peter Sellers, triple-cast as the befuddled U.S. president, the veddy British commander Mandrake and the maniacal Dr. Strangelove. Slim Pickens (BLAZING SADDLES) plummets his way into comedic history. “Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here, this is the war room.” [DCP]
