A gallery of unforgettable comic grotesques, including Sterling Hayden’s fluoride-hating general, George C. Scott’s oversexed Commie killer, and the brilliant Peter Sellers as the befuddled U.S. president, as well as the veddy-British commander Mandrake and the maniacal Dr. Strangelove. Slim Pickens (BLAZING SADDLES) plummets his way into comedic history. "Gentlemen, you can't fight in here, this is the war room."
In Jimmy Murakami’s apocalyptic animated delight, aging British couple Hilda and Jim Bloggs (Peggy Ashcroft and John Mills) build a bomb shelter in preparation for an impending nuclear attack, unaware that the nature of warfare has changed since World War II. Written by Raymond Briggs (THE SNOWMAN) based on his graphic novel of the same name. Soundtrack features music by Roger Waters and David Bowie (who performed the title song), along with Genesis, Squeeze and Paul Hardcastle.
