Three Characters by Peter Sellers

Peter Sellers plays the enigmatic Dr. Strangelove, a displaced German scientist; the wussy President Merkin Muffley; and the take-charge Group Captain Lionel Mandrake.

Dr. Strangelove

Stanley Kubrick's 1964 movie about the Cold War and the doctrine of mutually assured destruction (MAD) is a showcase for the talents of Peter Sellers, George C. Scott, Sterling Haydn and Slim Pickens. It is the top-ranked comedy in the AFI list of the top 100 films of the 20th Century. Let's hope Major Kong is carrying his miniature combination Russian phrasebook and Bible on the way down.
