This Excursion's Main Feature:
Nominated for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Screenplay of 1965; the cold-war classic Dr. Strangelove (or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb) Starring Peter Sellars and George C. Scott!
Stanley Kubrick's celebrated black comedy classic about an "accidental" nuclear attack was nominated for four 1964 Academy Awards. Created during a time when the paranoia of the Cold War was at its peak, the film still seems surprisingly relevant today. Convinced the Commies are polluting America's "precious bodily fluids," a crazed General (Sterling Hayden) orders a surprise nuclear air strike on the USSR. His aide Captain Mandrake (Peter Sellers) furiously attempts to figure out a recall code to stop the bombing. Meanwhile, the U.S. President (Sellers again) gets on the hot line to convince the drunken Soviet premier that the impending attack is a silly mistake, while the President's adviser (and ex-Nazi scientist) Dr. Strangelove (Sellers once more) confirms the existence of the dreaded Doomsday Machine -- a new secret Soviet retaliatory device guaranteed to end the human race once and for all!
BONUS: Feature II
The 1949 Oscar-Winning WWII Drama Twelve O'Clock High Starring Gregory Peck and Dean Jagger!
The story of a hard-as-nails general who takes over a bomber pilot unit suffering from low morale and whips them into fighting shape. Set in the early days of daylight bombing raids over Germany, General Frank Savage must take command of a "hard luck" bomber group. Much of the story deals with his struggle to whip his group into a disciplined fighting unit in spite of heavy losses, and withering attacks by German fighters over their targets. Actual combat footage is used in this tense war drama.
Show starts promptly at dusk!
