Among the titles that Kubrick considered for the film were Dr. The choice was influenced by reading Southern's comic novel The Magic Christian , which Kubrick had received as a gift from Peter Sellers,  and which itself became a Sellers film in Southern made important contributions to the film, but his role led to a rift between Kubrick and Peter George; after Life magazine published a photo-essay on Southern in August which implied that Southern had been the script's principal author—a misperception neither Kubrick nor Southern did much to dispel—Peter George wrote an indignant letter to the magazine, published in its September issue, in which he pointed out that he had both written the film's source novel and collaborated on various incarnations of the script over a period of ten months, whereas "Southern was briefly employed Kubrick and myself".
Strangelove was filmed at Shepperton Studios , near London , as Sellers was in the middle of a divorce at the time and unable to leave England. The film's set design was done by Ken Adam , the production designer of several James Bond films at the time he had already worked on Dr. The black and white cinematography was by Gilbert Taylor , and the film was edited by Anthony Harvey and an uncredited Kubrick.
The original musical score for the film was composed by Laurie Johnson and the special effects were by Wally Veevers. The theme of the chorus from the bomb run scene is a modification of When Johnny Comes Marching Home. Sellers and Kubrick got on famously during the film's production and shared a love of photography.

For the War Room, Ken Adam first designed a two-level set which Kubrick initially liked, only to decide later that it was not what he wanted. Adam next began work on the design that was used in the film, an expressionist set that was compared with The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and Fritz Lang 's Metropolis. One side of the room was covered with gigantic strategic maps reflecting in a shiny black floor inspired by dance scenes in Fred Astaire films.

In the middle of the room there was a large circular table lit from above by a circle of lamps, suggesting a poker table. Kubrick insisted that the table would be covered with green baize although this could not be seen in the black and white film to reinforce the actors' impression that they are playing 'a game of poker for the fate of the world. Moreover, each lamp in the circle of lights was carefully placed and tested until Kubrick was happy with the result. Lacking cooperation from the Pentagon in the making of the film, the set designers reconstructed the aircraft cockpit to the best of their ability by comparing the cockpit of a B Superfortress and a single photograph of the cockpit of a B and relating this to the geometry of the B's fuselage.
The B was state-of-the-art in the s, and its cockpit was off-limits to the film crew. When some United States Air Force personnel were invited to view the reconstructed B cockpit, they said that "it was absolutely correct, even to the little black box which was the CRM. In several shots of the B flying over the polar ice en route to Russia, the shadow of the actual camera plane, a Boeing B Flying Fortress , is visible on the icecap below.
The B was a scale model composited into the Arctic footage, which was sped up to create a sense of jet speed. Strangelove" painted over the rear entry hatch on the right side of the fuselage. Benson had access to the aerial footage filmed for the B52 sequences of Dr Strangelove , which was stored at Shepperton Studios. The use of the footage prompted Kubrick to call Benson to complain. Red Alert was more solemn than its film version, and it did not include the character Dr. Strangelove, though the main plot and technical elements were quite similar. A novelization of the actual film, rather than a reprint of the original novel, was published by Peter George, based on an early draft in which the narrative is bookended by the account of aliens, who, having arrived at a desolated Earth, try to piece together what has happened.
It was reissued in October by Candy Jar Books , featuring never-before-published material on Strangelove's early career. During the filming of Dr.
Strangelove , Stanley Kubrick learned that Fail Safe , a film with a similar theme, was being produced. Although Fail Safe was to be an ultrarealistic thriller, Kubrick feared that its plot resemblance would damage his film's box office potential, especially if it were released first. Indeed, the novel Fail-Safe on which the film is based is so similar to Red Alert that Peter George sued on charges of plagiarism and settled out of court. Kubrick decided to throw a legal wrench into Fail Safe ' s production gears.
Lumet recalled in the documentary Inside the Making of Dr. Strangelove : "We started casting. Fonda was already set I was set, Walter [Bernstein, the screenwriter] was set And suddenly, this lawsuit arrived, filed by Stanley Kubrick and Columbia Pictures. He pointed out unmistakable similarities in intentions between the characters Groeteschele and Strangelove.
The plan worked, and Fail Safe opened eight months after Dr. Strangelove , to critical acclaim but mediocre ticket sales. The end of the film shows Dr. In some shots, old warships such as the German heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen , which were used as targets, are plainly visible. In others, the smoke trails of rockets used to create a calibration backdrop can be seen. It was originally planned for the film to end with a scene that depicted everyone in the war room involved in a pie fight. Accounts vary as to why the pie fight was cut.
In a interview, Kubrick said, "I decided it was farce and not consistent with the satiric tone of the rest of the film.
So, as Kubrick later said, 'it was a disaster of Homeric proportions. A first test screening of the film was scheduled for November 22, , the day of the assassination of John F. The film was just weeks from its scheduled premiere, but because of the assassination, the release was delayed until late January , as it was felt that the public was in no mood for such a film any sooner. During post-production, one line by Slim Pickens, "a fella could have a pretty good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff," was dubbed to change "Dallas" to " Vegas ," since Dallas was where Kennedy was killed.
The assassination also serves as another possible reason that the pie-fight scene was cut. In the scene, after Muffley takes a pie in the face, General Turgidson exclaims: "Gentlemen! Our gallant young president has been struck down in his prime! In , the film was rereleased.

While the release used a 1. Strangelove takes passing shots at numerous contemporary Cold War attitudes, such as the " missile gap ", but it primarily focuses its satire on the theory of mutual assured destruction MAD ,  in which each side is supposed to be deterred from a nuclear war by the prospect of a universal cataclysmic disaster regardless of who "won".
Military strategist and former physicist Herman Kahn , in the book On Thermonuclear War , used the theoretical example of a " doomsday machine " to illustrate the limitations of MAD, which was developed by John von Neumann. The concept of such a machine is consistent with MAD doctrine when it is logically pursued to its conclusion.
