Geez, we almost let the whole day go by forgetting to celebrate a birthday. Okay, not a birthday of someone we know, but a cinematic anniversary for a film whose comedy and satire is just as biting today as it ever was: "Dr. Strangelove: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb."

Dr. Strangelove Stanley Kubrick

Geez, we almost let the whole day go by forgetting to celebrate a birthday. Okay, not a birthday of someone we know, but a cinematic anniversary for a film whose comedy and satire is just as biting today as it ever was: "Dr. Strangelove: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb."

Yep, it was fifty years ago today that Stanley Kubrick's film arrived in theaters, and we've got an easy way for you to look back, with the 45-minute doc, "Inside Dr. Strangelove." Featuring interviews with key cast members, anecdotes and much more, this is a great overview of the production and how Kubrick assembled would what be one of his crowning achievements (among a filmography full of them). For more you can read about Kubrick's plans for a trilogy, with a sequel that would've been directed by Terry Gilliam, along with a look at his alternate titles for the movie. Watch below.
