"I’m so sorry," she replied softly, lowering her head. "Was it the same accident that put you in a wheelchair?" Out of curiosity, she let her fingertips brush his gloved hand.
"Different accident,"He replied,"Constant radiation exposure rendered my legs weak and unstable, the glove is cover up chemical burns." Dr. Strangelove looked at her fingertips as they moved across his knuckles. His eyes motioned to meet hers as she lightly brushed against his hand.
"Sorry to hear that, too," Cheryl replied with a small smile. She locked eyes with him. "So what brings you, a German, to America? And how do you like our country?"
He laughed slightly, a tight throaty laugh as he looked into Cheryl’s eyes from behind his dark glasses. “I like your country…it is a good fit now, was not when I first came, though that was a different time.”

A collection of rare color photographs from one of the classics of modern cinema, Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove: Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. These photos also include a glimpse of the infamous 'pie-fight' finale that was excised from the film prior to release. Though I am not positive, some of these photos may have been taken by the well-known photographer from the era, Weegee, as he was present during the pie-fight sequence. The photos were accumulated from the following sources: Kubrick by Michel Ciment (2001 edition); Stanley Kubrick Filmographie Complète (Taschen, 2003); Stanley Kubrick Archives (Taschen 1st ed.).
