Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, more commonly known as Dr.
Strangelove, is a 1964 political satire black comedy film that satirizes the Cold War fears of a nuclear conflict between the Soviet Union and the United States.
Muffley discloses the plane's target to help the Soviets find it, but Major Kong, his fuel dwindling, has selected a closer target.
As the plane approaches the new target, the crew is unable to open the damaged bomb bay doors.
The film was directed, produced, and co-written by Stanley Kubrick, stars Peter Sellers and George C.
Scott, and features Sterling Hayden, Keenan Wynn, and Slim Pickens. The film is loosely based on Peter George's thriller novel Red Alert (1958).
Columbia Pictures agreed to finance the film if Peter Sellers played at least four major roles.
