Bombs are Dangerous

Last night we watched "Dr. Strangelove:  Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb."  Dark, dark, dark, but very funny.  Truly a classic. 


I can see why it succeeded as it did.  People had enough of being terrified by the cold war and the threat of nuclear annihilation in real life; they didn't need to see a movie that tried to do the same thing.  "Dr. Strangelove" invited them to laugh at it, no matter how darkly.
