Description

    Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (Columbia, 1964). Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14"). A sharply biting political comedy, this film, one of star Peter Sellers's best, is as darkly relevant today as it was 45 years ago at the height of the Cold War. As group Captain Lionel Mandrake, President Merkin Muffley, and the titular Dr. Strangelove, Sellers dominates the picture from beginning to end, presenting three of his greatest characterizations (Sellers was originally slated to play the role of Major Kong as well, but after he broke his ankle, director Stanley Kubrick cast Slim Pickens in the part instead). The film received four Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, Best Actor (Sellers), Best Director (Kubrick), and Best Screenplay, and is considered a masterpiece of dark humor. This extremely desirable lobby card set is in superb condition; there is a small nick and a light smudge on the title card, a small stain in the bottom border of one card, and corner bumps in the top left of two cards. Aside from these minor imperfections, this set is extremely clean, and presents very nicely. It will make a great addition to any collection. Very Fine+.
