Intermission: Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

On this Intermission... the guys are joined by the wise ol' Dr Earl, and in this week's discussion is the 1964 Stanley Kubrick classic, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.

A political satire, one that the late Roger Ebert called "the greatest political satire of the 20th century", "Dr. Strangelove" is the story of a United States General who goes rogue, sending a nuclear missile towards the Soviet Union... George C. Scott is another general who works with the president to solve the crisis... Slim Pickens is the airman piloting the plane who is about to drop the bomb... and Peter Sellers is the President, named Merkin Muffley... and Peter Sellers plays Capt. Lionel Mandrake, who is being held by the crazy general.  Oh, and it also stars Peter Sellers as the title character, Dr. Strangelove, an eccentric expert with a weird hand problem brought in to advise the situation...

Enjoy the episode as we give our insights, our likes, our dislikes and more..

Join us for the next Deucecast Movie Picture Show, when the guys take on "Marvel Movies"... and the next Intermission, with The Bridge on the River Kwai.
