Part 1 and Part 2 of a 35MM promo reel for Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. The reel features some alternate takes and cut scenes, and is possibly narrated by Kubrick himself. via Cinephilia, who also have a bunch of great photos of Kubrick at work on the set.

This is a pretty great pairing with the Finnish Cold War essay a few posts down. I was just humming the music from the bombing run...

Other good news is the Dr. Strangelove is currently available for streaming on Netflix. Void where prohibited.

Oh hey, speaking of Kubrick, check out this comment from yesterday that linked to an interesting article about marketing that made use of Kubrick movie trailers to prove a point.

I can't say I've ever heard Kubrick's actual voice, but that narrator sure sounds a lot like Tony Franciosa.
