DR STRANGELOVE OR: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB is a 1964 US black-and-white black comedy in which an insane United States Air Force general orders a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union.

Sex

Mild verbal sex references include ones to a proposed human breeding programme wherein each man would be assigned ten women selected for their "stimulating sexual characteristics". There are also references to a man's "essence" and to the "physical act of love", as well as brief sight of glamour shots of female models, without visible nudity.

Language

There is occasional use of the term 'bloody'. Very mild terms include 'damn' and 'hell'.

Violence

Scenes of a raid on a military base feature heavy gunfire. Bodies are briefly seen on the ground but there is no blood or injury detail.

Threat

There are non-graphic comic references to the threat of global nuclear annihilation. Further mild threat occurs in a scene in which a military plane nearly crashes.

Suicide

An off-screen suicide is indicated by the sound of a gunshot.

There is a brief reference to Air Force pilots being issued with drugs including morphine and pep pills.
