In the mean time, Group Captain Lionel Mandrake (Sellers) is attempting to trick Hayden into giving him the code that will recall all the bombers. At the Pentagon, the President (Sellers again) and wacky General "Buck" Turgidson (George C. Scott) have decided that they will help the Russians shoot down the bombers, with the help of the extremely loony Strangelove, a wheel-chair bound scientist, who's artificial arm keeps giving the Nazi salute. Will the Bombs be stopped? Or will everyone be blown off the face of the earth?
From start to finish, Dr. Strangelove remains hilarious, with some extremely funny scenes. The scene with The President on the phone with the Soviet Premier is hysterical. Plus, the black-and-white cinematography is excellent. During the scenes of battle, you'd almost think you were watching a real documentary. The acting is great, especially from Sellers and Scott. This is most likely director Stanley Kubrick's (A Clockwork Orange, 2001: A Space Odyssey) masterpiece.
