I just got through watching Dr. Strange Love by Stanley Kubrick
for the 10th or 11th time. lol I'm a huge Kubrick fan so we can discuss
any of his works. I don't know a lot of his early works but I've seen
2001, The Shinning, Clock Work Orange,,Full Metal Jacket I've only
seen parts of Eyes Wide Shut,

Peter Sellers was absolutely remarkable playing 3 different roles!
The dialogue of the movie was incredible! My favorite scene in
Dr. Strangelove was When the General played By George C Scott
grabs The Russian Ambassador and wrestles him to the ground
and The President played by Peter Sellers rushes over and says
gentlemen there is No fighting in the the war room! lol
Oh Here is a little bit of info I just learned about Strangelove.
Peter Sellers was suppose to play 4 different roles. Can anybody
tell me what other role he was suppose to play? Peter turned it
down. He thought it was just to much to try and play 4 different

Another weird synchronicity, I've had the end credits of Strangelove playing in my head for the last 3 days.

It's a truly inspired, brilliant film an anti-war parody, the ultimate dark comedy. (And, of interest, his spectacular front screen projection views of the B-52 over Siberia never before seen at that time brought Kubrick to the attention of those in NASA wanting to solve the problem of how to fake the moon landing images. All that came from Dr Strangelove.)

About the four roles which Sellers was first asked to play (not just three!) read this page with interest: :)

And Stanley outed Fluoridation back in '64:

General Jack D. Ripper: Fluoridation is the most monstrously conceived and dangerous communist plot we have ever had to face.

Stanley's 2001 is just a masterpiece of entertainment and hidden messages.
I think I will watch it again tonight.
