Laurie Johnson. The live action is combined with short stop-frame animation sequences. The video also stars two models in underwear one of whom was Anton Corbijn's partner , as well as passing pedestrians, featured in the closing 'out-takes' sequence of fast-edit shots.
In the USA, MTV objected to some of the more revealing footage of the models and the video was edited to replace them with images of the band.
There was also a Corbijn-directed video for "Pimpf", exclusive to the Strange video, which features Dave Gahan , Andy Fletcher and Alan Wilder shouting at each other and syncing with the synthetic chanting, while Martin Gore plays the song on a piano.
While Gore plays the piano in the video, it is Wilder who plays the piano on all piano-instrumentals by the band from — as well as " Somebody ".
In , another video for "Strangelove" was released for the album version. It was directed by Martyn Atkins, who did photography for earlier DM albums.
This video is much simpler than the original, and features the band performing inside a city-scape location Senate House , the federal headquarters of the University of London.

According to James Earl Jones , Kubrick tricked Scott into playing the role of Gen. Turgidson far more ridiculously than Scott was comfortable doing.
Kubrick talked Scott into doing over-the-top "practice" takes, which Kubrick told Scott would never be used, as a way to warm up for the "real" takes.
Kubrick used these takes in the final film, causing Scott to swear never to work with Kubrick again. During the filming, Kubrick and Scott had different opinions regarding certain scenes, but Kubrick got Scott to conform largely by repeatedly beating him at chess , which they played frequently on the set.
Stanley Kubrick started with nothing but a vague idea to make a thriller about a nuclear accident that built on the widespread Cold War fear for survival.
At Kubrick's request, Alastair Buchan the head of the Institute for Strategic Studies recommended the thriller novel Red Alert by Peter George.
In collaboration with George, Kubrick started writing a screenplay based on the book. While writing the screenplay, they benefited from some brief consultations with Schelling and, later, Herman Kahn.
However, as he later explained during interviews, he began to see comedy inherent in the idea of mutual assured destruction as he wrote the first draft.
Kubrick said:. My idea of doing it as a nightmare comedy came in the early weeks of working on the screenplay. I found that in trying to put meat on the bones and to imagine the scenes fully, one had to keep leaving out of it things which were either absurd or paradoxical, in order to keep it from being funny; and these things seemed to be close to the heart of the scenes in question.
Among the titles that Kubrick considered for the film were Dr. Doomsday or: How to Start World War III Without Even Trying , Dr. Strangelove's Secret Uses of Uranus , and Wonderful Bomb.
The choice was influenced by reading Southern's comic novel The Magic Christian , which 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 Kubrick and myself".
Strangelove was filmed at Shepperton Studios , near London , as 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 Adam , the production designer of several James Bond films at the time he had already worked on Dr.
The black and white cinematography was by Gilbert Taylor , and the film was edited by Anthony Harvey and an uncredited Kubrick.
The original musical score for the film was composed by Laurie Johnson and the special effects were by Wally Veevers. The opening theme is an instrumental version of Try a Little Tenderness.
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.
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. Lacking cooperation from the Pentagon in the making of the film, the set designers reconstructed the aircraft cockpit to the best of their ability by comparing the cockpit of a B Superfortress and a single photograph of the cockpit of a B and relating this to the geometry of the B's fuselage.
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.
In several shots of the B flying over the polar ice en route to Russia, the shadow of the actual camera plane, a Boeing B Flying Fortress , is visible on the icecap below.
The B was a scale model composited into the Arctic footage, which was sped up to create a sense of jet speed.
Strangelove on the Special Edition DVD release of the film shows clips of the B with a cursive "Dr. Strangelove" painted over the rear entry hatch on the right side of the fuselage.
In , some of the flying footage from Dr. Strangelove was re-used in The Beatles ' television film Magical Mystery Tour. As told by editor Roy Benson in the BBC Radio Documentary Celluloid Beatles , the production team of Magical Mystery Tour lacked footage to cover the sequence for the song " Flying ".
Benson had access to the aerial footage filmed for the B sequences of Dr. Strangelove , which was stored at Shepperton Studios.
The use of the footage prompted Kubrick to call Benson to complain. Red Alert author Peter George collaborated on the screenplay with Kubrick and satirist Terry Southern.
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 Books, featuring never-before-published material on Strangelove's early career. During the filming of Dr.
Strangelove , Stanley Kubrick learned that Fail Safe , a 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.
Strangelove : "We started casting. 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.
Kubrick argued that Fail Safe ' s own source novel Fail-Safe had been plagiarized from Peter George's Red Alert , to which Kubrick owned creative rights.
He pointed out unmistakable similarities in intentions between the characters Groeteschele and Strangelove. The plan worked, and the suit was settled out of court, with the agreement that Columbia Pictures , which had financed and was distributing Strangelove , also buy Fail Safe , which had been an independently financed production.
Strangelove , to critical acclaim but mediocre ticket sales. The end of the film shows Dr. Strangelove exclaiming, " Mein Führer, I can walk!
This footage comes from nuclear tests such as shot BAKER of Operation Crossroads at Bikini Atoll , the Trinity test , a test from Operation Sandstone and the hydrogen bomb tests from Operation Redwing and Operation Ivy.
In some shots, old warships such as the German heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen , which were used as targets, are plainly visible. In others, the smoke trails of rockets used to create a calibration backdrop can be seen.
Former Goon Show writer and friend of Sellers Spike Milligan was credited with suggesting Vera Lynn's song for the ending. 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. A first test screening of the film was scheduled for November 22, , the day of the assassination of John F.
The film was just weeks from its scheduled premiere, but because of the assassination, the release was delayed until late January , as it was felt that the public was in no mood for such a film any sooner.
During post-production, one line by Slim Pickens, "a fella could have a pretty good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff", was dubbed to change "Dallas" to " Vegas ", since Dallas was where Kennedy was killed.
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: "Gentlemen!
Our gallant young president has been struck down in his prime! In , the film was re-released. While the release used a 1. Strangelove ridicules nuclear war planning.
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, which, while superficially resembling MAD, allowed for responding to a limited nuclear strike with a proportional, or calibrated, return of fire see Conflict 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.
President, I'm not saying we wouldn't get our hair mussed. But I do say no more than ten to twenty million killed, tops, uh, depending on the breaks.
