“It is the stated position of the U.S. Air Force that their safeguards would prevent the occurrence of such events as are depicted in this film. Furthermore, it should be noted that none of the characters portrayed in this film are meant to represent any real persons living or dead.

“Dr.Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb” (1964) was a collaboration which united Stanley Kubrick and Peter Sellers and remains a landmark satire filmed at the height of the ‘Cold War’ in 1964. Tomi Ungerer’s iconic cartoonish design is truly mememorable and perfectly complements the comedic subject matter. The US One-Sheet poster was produced with two distinct ink formats, a normal matte red and the day-glo pink/orange format offered for sale here. The day-glo design is certainly the more striking and desirable, and is also the rarer of the two. Presented in excellent unrestored, original condition this folded (as issued) example displays to a very high standard and with its exceptional rarity represents a highly collectable item of Stanley Kubrick cinema movie memorabilia for one of the most original films ever made, by one of the greatest ever film-makers.

Trivia: Dr. Strangelove’s glove is from Stanley Kubrick‘s personal collection. Peter Sellers had seen Kubrick wearing them to handle hot lights on the set, and thought they looked sinister. He wore one on his right hand (the one not under his control) to add to Strangelove’s eeriness.
