Major Kong's (Slim Pickens) View From His B-52 Strat-O-Fortress In 'Dr. Strangelove'



It's a favorite scene with Slim Pickens, (that's him on the left with the cowboy hat), but how can you have just one with such incredible acting, not to mention direction and screenwriting. This should be mandatory in every school kid's curriculum, and maybe repeated several times.

Dr. Strangelove: or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964) (imdb)

The Top Line in a cast of titans:

Peter Sellers: Group Captain Lionel Mandrake / President Merkin Muffley / Dr. Strangelove

George C. Scott: Gen. 'Buck' Turgidson

Sterling Hayden: Brig. Gen. Jack D. Ripper

Keenan Wynn: Col. 'Bat' Guano

Slim Pickens: Maj. T.J. 'King' Kong

Peter Bull: Russian Ambassador Alexi de Sadesky

James Earl Jones: Lt. Lothar Zogg


Of course, just before the mushroom clouds begin,

Vera Lynn and "We'll Meet Again".
