I’m still on a bit of a Dr. Strangelove kick, but I don’t want to completely spam this blog with stuff about it so here are some links to other things of interest:
• SAC Command Post, a U.S. Air Force documentary from the 60s made to reassure the public that what happens in Dr. Strangelove (and similar films and books) couldn’t happen in real life. Not the most exciting 20 minutes, but pretty interesting if you’ve just seen the movie.
• Love That Bomb by “Dr. Strangelove and the Fallouts”. a promo tie-in song (which doesn’t appear in the film) that I’d never even heard of until just the other day. It’s very 60s and very bad.
• Die-hard fans might want to read the Dr. Strangelove screenplay too, which at first glance seems to differ quite a bit from the finished film.
• Still need convincing? The amazingly-edited trailer is something of a masterpiece in itself.
