Strategic bombers are dispersed George O'Connor talk The only difference between SSB and AM voice is that you need a bit over twice as much power - all other things being equal - to make a given channel or range unusable. Not really a big technical hurdle. EAMs can be sent on several channels at high power, but the fact that SSB is used hardly changes anything!
If anyone seconds this, I'll do the delete.
Strangelove use only a B mockup, and no B's? Why does this article say "see B Hustler as used for stand-in aircraft in the movie: Strangelove" if no B's were used in Dr. FWiW Bzuk talk Whose wife was in New York City? However, I'm not sure enough of that to correct what is listed in the article.
Can anyone else confirm my suspicion? So there's no reason the President should expect Black to know the First Lady's location better than the President himself would know. So I'm pretty sure the President was inquiring about Black's wife at that point, not about his own.
Further, I think I recall the film's opening scene had established Black's wife's name as Katie and that their family lived in New York, with Black having started that day by flying from there down to Washington. Increasing the plot section recently by a three-fold measure, was likely a place to consider some pruning of the new submissions. The plot also should not elaborate on film devices, but these can become part of the lede statement or production section.
Found this article where he does so. Also relates to the lawsuit section. Aiken made me a good pen name. It got the lead cover listing of the Winter Dissent: Bud Burdick was given a copy but he had forgotten.
He had assigned to us a very bright and personable young attorney, Frank Wells — later to become President of Disney. I pointed out the Aiken article. A big grin spread across his face. A noisy five-way conference phone call was held: But the bad phone connections made argument impossible. I agreed to a settlement. Columbia Pictures took over the film contract and made the picture just like Youngstein wanted.
The title card during the film's opening has a hyphen between the two words. The original novel also has a hyphen as per its Wikipedia page. Though I do note that the film's original trailer has no hyphen, and neither does some of the film posters of the time -- Rhettrospective talk The term should have one, or be a single wordbut for some reason, the film production was ambiguous about it.
I sometimes wonder if the image of the plane in the poster is meant to be the hyphen. Note that IMDb hyphenates its entry for the film.

The film title itself is hyphenated in the opening credit, so I suspect it should be added. Problem is, I can't see where in the Edit tab one actually changes the heading of the wikipedia page -- Rhettrospective talk It might be good to get some input from other editors first.
The use of "plagiarism" is consistent with what LoBrutto says although LoBrutto suggests it was Kubrick, not George, who sued; but the passive voice makes it hard to be certain: Plagiarism is the academic offense of using someone else's words or ideas without giving proper credit, passing them off as one's own. What was undoubtedly filed here was a copyright infringement suit. An act can be both copyright infringement and plagiarism, but only the copyright infringement is actionable.
For example, copy ideas without giving credit: The choice was influenced by reading Southern's comic novel The Magic Christianwhich 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 Strangelove was filmed at Shepperton Studiosnear Londonas 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 Adamthe production designer of several James Bond films at the time he had already worked on Dr. The black and white cinematography was by Gilbert Taylorand the film was edited by Anthony Harvey and Stanley Kubrick uncredited.
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. The War Room with the Big Board. 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.
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.
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 Stranglelove, 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 Booksfeaturing never-before-published material on Strangelove's early career. Strangelove, Stanley Kubrick learned that Fail Safea 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. 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. Ending[ edit ] The end of the film shows Dr.
In some shots, old warships such as the German heavy cruiser Prinz Eugenwhich 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.
The film was just weeks from its scheduled premiere, but because of the assassination, the release was delayed until late Januaryas it was felt that the public was in no mood for such a film any sooner. 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: Our gallant young president has been struck down in his prime! 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 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.
It thus worried Kahn that the military might like the idea of a Doomsday Machine and build one. With this logical reasoning, Kahn became one of the architects of the flexible response doctrine, that while superficially resembling MAD, allowed for responding to a limited nuclear strike, with a proportional or calibrated, return of fire see On Escalation.
Kahn educated Kubrick on the concept of the semirealistic "cobalt-thorium G" Doomsday Machine, and then Kubrick used the concept for the film.
Kahn in his writings and talks would often come across as cold and calculating, for example, with his use of the term megadeaths and in his willingness to estimate how many human lives the United States could lose and still rebuild economically, but it was unfair, as he was not really advocating nuclear warfare.
He simply meant that if it came to nuclear war, there might, in fact, be a limited one, and options should be kept open.
