DR. STRANGELOVE (1964)
Color Me Kubrick Month (Post #7)
Kubick’s classic cold war comedy would definitely be on my top ten favorite films of all-time list. It also includes my favorite moment from any film. That, of course, is Slim Pickens descending out of his airplane riding a nuclear bomb like a cowboy in a rodeo.
Three additioinal memorable scenes:
1. General Jack D. Ripper explaining to Mandrake about the loss of his precious bodily fluids.
2.General Turginson scuffling with the Soviet ambassador in the war room.
3. Dr. Strangelove and his out of control arm.
But really, you could easily fill up a page with classic moments from this film.
