Dr. Strangelove, or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

Considered the best black comedy ever made with Peter Sellers playing 3 roles. An insane American colonel launches a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union and while the military tries to stop it, the President is negotiating on the hot line with a drunken Russian Premier. Hilarious
