Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love The Bomb Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

STANLEY KUBRICK's painfully funny take on Cold War anxiety is without a doubt one of the fiercest satires of human folly ever to come out of Hollywood. The matchless shape-shifter PETER SELLERS (The Pink Panther) plays three wildly different roles: Air Force Captain Lionel Mandrake, timidly trying to stop a nuclear attack on the USSR ordered by an unbalanced general (The Killing's STERLING HAYDEN); the ineffectual and perpetually dumbfounded President Merkin Muffley, who must deliver the very bad news to the Soviet premier; and the titular Strangelove himself, a wheelchairbound... presidential adviser with a Nazi past. Finding improbable hilarity in nearly every unimaginable scenario, Dr. Strangelove, or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb is a genuinely subversive masterpiece that officially announced Kubrick as an unparalleled stylist and pitch-black ironist. Bonus Features: Restored 4K digital transfer, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack Alternate 5.1 surround soundtrack New interviews with Stanley Kubrick scholars Mick Broderick and Rodney Hill; archivist Richard Daniels; cinematographer and camera innovator Joe Dunton; camera operator Kelvin Pike; and David George, son of Peter George, on whose novel Red Alert the film is based Excerpts from a 1965 audio interview with Kubrick, conducted by Jeremy Bernstein Four short documentaries from 2000, about the making of the film, the sociopolitical climate of the period, the work of actor Peter Sellers, and the artistry of Kubrick Interviews from 1963 with Sellers and actor George C.

Stanley Kubrick directs this Oscar-nominated black comedy starring Peter Sellers and Sterling Hayden. When lunatic General Jack D. Ripper (Hayden) launches a nuclear attack on Russia, President of the United States Merkin Muffley (Sellers) consults his advisors, among them the wheelchair-bound, ex-Nazi scientist Dr Strangelove (also Sellers). Meanwhile, British Air Force Captain Lionel Mandrake (also Sellers) attempts to cancel the unplanned attack. The cast includes George C. Scott, Keenan Wynn, James Earl Jones and Slim Pickens.

Please note this is a region B Blu-ray and will require a region B or region free Blu-ray player in order to play. DR. STRANGELOVE IS A BRILLIANT BIT OF CELLULOID GENIUS AND A TRUE CLASSIC in every sense of the word. Nominated for four Academy Awards including Best Picture (1964), Stanley Kubrick’s black comedy about a group of paranoia-inspired, war-happy generals who manage to initiate an accidental nuclear apocalypse, is horribly frightening, delightfully funny and surprisingly relevant to this day. This is the saga of two psychotic generals: Joint Chief of Staff Buck Turgidson (George C. Scott) and Air Force Strategic Commander Jack Ripper (Sterling Hayden), who orders a bomber squadron to attack the USSR, triggering a Soviet secret weapon, the Doomsday Machine, a diabolical retaliatory missile system. Peter Sellers portrays a trio of men who attempt to avert this catastrophe: British Captain Lionel Mandrake, the only person with access to paranoid Gen. Ripper; U.S. President Muffley, whose best attempt at diverting this disaster depends on convincing a boozed-up Soviet Premier. Actors: Sterling Hayden, George C.
