view all

Sellers plays a tour-de-force triple role in Kubrick's classic black anti-war comedy. When a crazed general (Hayden) initiates a nuclear attack on the Soviets, the U.S. President (Sellers) deals with the consequences, "aided" by a hawkish general (Scott) and a wheelchair-bound advisor with an obvious Nazi past. Famous for Pickens' wild ride on the bomb, Hayden's character's "purity of essence" philosophy, Scott's gumchewing militarist, a soft-drink vending machine dispute, and countless other scenes. Based on the novel "Red Alert" by Peter George.
