Dr Strangelove (Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb)
Consistently hailed as one of the best comedy films of all time, and regularly rated in the top 3 of Stanley Kubrick’s films.
Kubrick originally intended to film it as a Cold War thriller, but seeing the comic potential in the absurdist nature of MAD’s strategy, he changed his mind deciding to film it as satirical comedy, although filming in black and white to give a more film-noir feel.
Comic genius Peter Sellers played not one but three roles, including of course the eponymous Dr Strangelove.
The increasingly hard to find US One Sheet film poster with its Tomi Ungerer artwork continues to be very sought after.
