Dr. Strangesound


Dr. Strangelove by Stanley Kubrick

This opening sequence from the 1964 movie, Dr. Strangelove,  employs hectic handmade lettering that contrasts a ostensibly peaceful scene. The song, “Try a Little Tenderness,” ironically casts the nuclear bomber and the fueling jet in a romantic affair, a brilliant example of what sound can do for a motion sequence.
