I had seen this movie several times before I realized Sellers also played the President. I had read someplace that when this movie was released, that a few critics missed this to.Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. Peter Sellers playing three roles and the entire movie is a hoot. Watch it and laugh.
Would not doubt it. My understanding is that the whole movie was filmed in England on one studio lot. That some of the exterior scenes for "Burpleson AFB" was actually the studio lot buildings. So it would not surprise me if they used canned incorrect footage for the soldiers.........................
When the Army unit is assaulting the Air Force base, there are a few scenes of combat that look like stock footage to me. One Soldier looks to be shooting an MP40, or possibly an STG44. Has anyone else ever noticed this?
The only dubbed over portion in the entire movie. Originally Kong (Pickens) said a fella' could have a pretty good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff; but between the film's completion and it's release, the JFK assassination occurred so the line was changed due to the sensitivity of that event. You can see he doesn't say the same word.Survival kit contents check. In them you'll find: one forty-five caliber automatic; two boxes of ammunition; four days' concentrated emergency rations; one drug issue containing antibiotics, morphine, vitamin pills, pep pills, sleeping pills, tranquilizer pills; one miniature combination Russian phrase book and Bible; one hundred dollars in rubles; one hundred dollars in gold; nine packs of chewing gum; one issue of prophylactics; three lipsticks; three pair of nylon stockings.
Shoot, a fella' could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff.
