Paper Topic:

Fact meets Fiction:  Made- up Cinematography & Real History ?

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

Due Date: no later than 11/28/13

Stanley Kubrick’s movie from 1964 is a comedy film which satirizes the nuclear scare during the infamous Cold War Era. However, among the parodies and ridicules in the movie, which are meant to underpin the gravity of the situation for the viewer, Stanley Kubrick is making serious commentaries and judgments about the tense situation created by the two rivaling world powers behind which stand ordinarily ambitious men. He does this using various symbolisms hidden within the movie, whether they be the names of the main characters, their what seems at times eccentric/ ridiculous actions, their comments, and/or props used in the movie. Make sure you pay special attention to the President, the General and Dr.Strangelove himself.

Therefore, for this paper you are to find those symbolisms in Dr. Strangelove, analyze them and tie their analysis to the true historical facts concerning the impending doomsday. You are to use the chapters in our textbook concerning the topic at hand (chapter 27 & 28) and any outside sources you deem pertinent to this assignment. Make sure you cite your sources.

*In 1989, the United States Library of Congress deemed the film "culturally significant" and selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry. It was listed as number three on American Film Industry’s  100 Years...100 Laughs.
