Description

A psychotic Air Force General mounts his singular campaign against Communism by ordering a squadron of B-52 bombers to attack the Soviet Union. The Soviets counter the threat with a so-called “Doomsday Device,” while the world hangs in the balance.

Kubrick’s brilliant satire on sex, politics, nuclear Armageddon and the military industrial complex is a cornucopia of outrageous comic performances, not the least of which are the three roles portrayed by Peter Sellers who received his first Oscar nomination for Best Actor. The stellar cast of assorted characters includes George C. Scott, Sterling Hayden, Keenan Wynn, Slim Pickens, and James Earl Jones in his first feature film.
