Come Now, Dr. Strangelove – Review by Andrew Sarris

by Caran Wakefield Pablo Ferraro’s original commercial for Doctor Strangelove: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb teases the audience, offering a sample of the gutsy black humor and subversive political satire that made the film famous.
