A few interesting pieces of trivia for you to enjoy:
The ending in the script was different from the one in the film, and indeed a different ending was also filmed. The details are a little sketchy, but the people in the famous
s at each other. The air was full of cream. This exchange of pies was a clear symbol of the missiles flying in the air from and toward the US.
The famous "riding the bomb" scene was not planned, but was added during the shooting.
The film was going to be premiered on November 22,
, but something unexpected happened:
. The film premiere date was pushed ahead, and a scene where the pilots go through their survival kits (including condoms and vitamins) and the commander of the plane says, "A fella could have a fun time with these in
" was dubbed to "A fella could have a fun time with these in
." The lips of the actor are clearly out of sync.
The actor (
George C. Scott
) playing the general in the War Room was known to be quite a rough and "tough boy." He had a lot of fights in previous movies, etc.
, however, "tamed" him by playing chess with him. Kubrik was a pretty good player, so Scott pondered his moves for hours and then Kubrik would walk over and move in less than a minute. Surprisingly (for some, maybe), Kubrik almost always won.
