Director Stanley Kubrick offers us three Oscar-nominated performances for the price of one in his savage satire on the power squabbles of the Cold War. When America accidentally launches a nuclear attack on Russia, it's up to a bemused British airman (brilliantly played by Peter Sellers) to save the day. Meanwhile, the US president (once more played by Sellers) is getting some very strange advice from an ex-Nazi scientist (yes, Sellers again) with a doomsday fixation. The result is demented, nightmarish and without doubt the funniest war movie ever made.
Given bravery medals for his Korean War service, a soldier returns home, but may not be all that he seems, as his platoon questions his heroism.
