** 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.

* RevisedEnding: The film famously had an original ending where everyone in the War Room breaks into a pie fight. Creator/StanleyKubrick decided not to end a black comedy with a farce. (Note there are pies on the table in the room).

** During the shootout in Ripper's office, Peter Seller's line was "I've got this thing in my leg." When he said it, it sounded like "This ''string'' in my leg's gone." Naturally, it was kept in.
