DR. STRANGELOVE OR: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB
1964, Sony Repertory, 93 min, Dir: Stanley Kubrick

A gallery of unforgettable comic grotesques, including Sterling Hayden’s fluoride-hating general, George C. Scott’s oversexed Commie killer, and the brilliant Peter Sellers as the befuddled U.S. president, as well as the veddy British commander Mandrake and the maniacal Dr. Strangelove. Slim Pickens (BLAZING SADDLES) plummets his way into comedic history. "Gentlemen, you can't fight in here, this is the war room."


50th Anniversary!

THE MAGIC CHRISTIAN
1969, Paramount, 93 min, UK, Dir: Joseph McGrath

Eccentric millionaire Guy Grand (Peter Sellers) knows that most folks will do anything for money and sets out to prove it with the help of his adopted hobo son, Ringo Starr, in this riotously funny satire, scripted by Terry Southern and director McGrath from Southern’s novel. Anarchy reigns with hilarious cameos along the way by John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Christopher Lee, Roman Polanski and Raquel Welch. (Beatle Paul penned the theme song, "Come and Get It.")
