Fearing the Russians are fluoridating American drinking water, a fanatical U.S. general launches an air strike against the Soviets. They raise the stakes by threatening to unleash a “doomsday device,” setting the stage for Armageddon in this classic black comedy that brilliantly skewers the nuclear age. Directed by Stanley Kubrick, the film’s star-studded cast includes George C. Scott, James Earl Jones and Peter Sellers (who won an Oscar for Best Actor).
