Stanley Kubricks klassische schwarze Komödie über einen "versehentlich" ausgelösten Nuklearangriff wurde mit vier Oscar-Nominierungen ausgezeichnet. Felsenfest davon überzeugt, dass die Kommunisten Amerikas Trinkwasser vergiften wollen, befielt ein wahnsinniger General einen nuklearen Luftangriff auf die UdSSR. Während sein Assistent Captain Mandrake verzweifelt versucht, den Rückruf-Code zu entschlüsseln, ruft der Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten den betrunkenen Sowjet-Premier auf dem Roten Telefon an und erklärt ihm, dass es sich bei dem Angriff um eine dummes Versehen handelt. Inzwischen bestätigt Dr. Seltsam, Berater des Präsidenten und ehemaliger Nazi-Wissenschaftler, die Existenz der gefürchteten Weltvernichtungsmaschine. Diese Verteidigungswaffe der Sowjets wird durch den Bombenabwurf automatisch ausgelöst und könnte die menschliche Rasse für alle Zeiten vernichten. (Quelle: Umschlagtext)
