A disgusted President Merkin reacts: "Gentlemen, Gentlemen, fighting in the war room!" Thus begins our humble thread in tribute to one of the blackest comedies ever put on film, a laugh fest about thermonuclear war, the 1964 classic from the late, great, control freak, Stanley Kubrick. From it's stark black and white photography, to the multi-faceted performance by genius Peter Sellers, to Slim Pickens riding the bomb to oblivion, this is a one of a kind film. If you've never seen it, I urge you to check it out. Keep in mind, this is the mid-sixties, the height of the Cold War paranoia, when the threat of world-wide annihilation was much more on everyone's mind on daily basis. For Kubrick to create a comedy about the potential genocide of the human race took BALLS. But of course, Mr. Kubrick never lacked those in his entire career. Look at the binder label on George C. Scott's notebook. A heavy metal group took their name from it, I believe.
