Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb DVD - Just The Good Stuff Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb ranked # 26 on the American Film Institute's Top 100 American Films list.

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb is a 1964 film by Stanley Kubrick loosely based on the novel Red Alert by Peter George.

A black comedy starring Peter Sellers (in three different roles), the film is a satire of the Cold War. The plot begins with an insane American general's order to launch a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union and proceeds towards doomsday.

Although it is a comedy, Dr. Strangelove is also suspenseful and engrossing and not the least "madcap". Two major scenes of action are the immense War Room dominated by the Big Board showing the location of every American bomber in the world, and the meticulous B-52 interior. The remainder is set in General Ripper's headquarters at Burpleson Air Force Base.

Roger Ebert has Dr. Strangelove in his list of Great Movies[1], saying it's "arguably the best political satire of the century."
