DR. STRANGELOVE OR: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB – Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2014
DR. STRANGELOVE, the British-American black comedy film, satirizes the nuclear scare of the mid- 20th Century. It was directed, produced, and written by Stanley Kubrick (co-written by Dallas resident Terry Southern) and stars Peter Sellers and George C. Scott featuring Sterling Hayden, Keenan Wynn, and Slim Pickens.
“We couldn't let the 50th anniversary of Stanley Kubrick's monochrome masterpiece go unnoticed, especially with its roots right here in DFW—screenwriter Terry Southern graduated from Sunset High School in Oak Cliff and an SMU alum—which is why we've tracked down a pristine print of the film on 35MM to be shown on its original release date, January 29. We’ve invited a couple of our friends, namely Chris Vognar and Robert Wilonsky of The Dallas Morning News to introduce it and lead a discussion after the film. Something tells me, we won't have to tell them there's no fighting in the war room on this one!" said James Wallace, Alamo DFW programmer.
