Dr. Strangelove

Or How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love the Bomb. I've seen this movie several times over the years. #1 Son, who picked tonight's show, first saw it in a film class where he was the only class member who laughed. His report is that the other students not only didn't think it was funny but didn't understand how anybody could think something that dated could be funny. It just so happens that Dr. Strangelove is #39 on the new AFI Top 100 List. Peter Sellers is the star and plays 3 roles. George C. Scott and Slim Pickens are great, too.

My only question is this: Is this a comedy? Or a tragedy? Hmmm...
