Film #40: Dr Strangelove

I finally got around to watching a classic as Dr Strangelove was the third film in the marathon. Playing the film around nuclear war at a time where relationship with Russia were at their lowest was a shrewd move but political commentary aside this film is a stage for Peter Sellers to improvise his way to comic genius. His performance of Dr Strangelove is insane, with his right arm having a mind of it's own. 

This film also finishes with a war song, in this case Dame Vera Lynne's "We'll Meet Again"
