Overview
Stanley Kubrick's black comedy classic about an "accidental" nuclear attack received four Oscar nominations (including Best Picture, 1964). Convinced the Commies want to pollute America's "precious bodily fluids," a crazed general (Sterling Hayden) orders a nuclear air strike on the U.S.S.R. As his aide, Captain Mandrake (Peter Sellers), scrambles to unlock a recall code to prevent the bombing, the U.S. President (Sellers again) calls a drunken Soviet Premier on the hotline claiming the proposed attack is all a silly mistake, while the President's advisor (an ex-Nazi scientist) Dr. Strangelove (Sellers once more) verifies the existence of a dreaded Doomsday Machine - a retaliatory device designed by the Soviets to end the human race once and for all!

Easter Eggs
In the very first menu (the one with PLAY MOVIE, AUDIO SETUP, SUBTITLES, SPECIAL FEATURES, etc.) if you scroll all the way to the bottom and past the last option, the top of the globe picture at the bottom of the screen will light on the top. If you press the ENTER button on your DVD remote, it will play short (not even a minute long) clip that includes every single moment the phrase "PLAN R" was said along with the funniest moments and greatest lines ("Gentlemen! You can't fight in here, this is the war room!").
