* The end of the movie, where Strangelove stands up and yells ''"MEIN FUHRER, I CAN WALK!"'' was actually an improv done by Peter Sellers, who accidentally stood up and, instead of cutting the scene, decided to do an improv, delivering the final, iconic line before the bombs fall and the credits roll.

** As mentioned before, the film originally ended with a huge pie fight, but Kubrick found it too farcical and cut it. So far the footage has only been screened once at London's National Film Theatre after Kubrick's death.

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Meta-example. Creator/StanleyKubrick tricked Creator/GeorgeCScott into doing over-the-top takes for playing Turgidson as practice, and went to use these takes in the final film. Scott swore not to work with Kubrick again after this, though he actually liked Kubrick's genius behind this deception and eventually saw this as one of his favorite performances.

** Especially strange since in ''Film/{{Lolita}}'', Sellers does not actually play multiple roles. He plays a single character who briefly pretends to be someone else.

* StillbornFranchise: In 1995, Cretor/StanleyKubrick enlisted Terry Southern to script a sequel titled Son of Strangelove. Kubrick had Creator/TerryGilliam in mind to direct. The script was never completed, but index cards laying out the story's basic structure were found among Southern's papers after his October 1995 death; it was set largely in underground bunkers, where Dr. Strangelove had taken refuge with a group of women.
