Answer:

3 is Dr.Strangelove saying “The whole point of a doomsday machine is lost if you keep it a secret. why did’nt you tell the world eh?!”

2. is Nazi scientist Wernher Von Braun

1. is Edward Teller ( “Father of the H Bomb’)

Dr.Strangelove’s character is an amalgamation of 1 and 2.

ps: If you have not seen Dr.Strgangelove, you have missed one of the best movies of all time :)

    Dr. Strangelove’s character (3) was based on Edward Teller (1) and von Braun (2).


  3. alephnull

    Dr. Strangelove’s character was based on Edward Teller and Werner von Braun, among others (iirc).

    1)Edward Teller- the father of the hydrogen bomb
    2)Wernher von Braun- leading figures in the development of rocket technology
    3)clipping from the movie Dr.Strangelove.

    They are rumored to be the inspiration for the character of Dr. Strangelove.

    Very nice question.
    1)Edward Teller ( “Father of the H Bomb’)
    2)The Nazi scientist Wernher Von Braun – the V2 rocket guy
    3) Peter Sellers as and in “Dr Strangelove”- the film directed by S Kubrick.
    The character of Dr Strangelove is based on idiosyncracies and ideological characteristics of Teller and Von Braun.
    The connect is : “Dr Strangelove-or how I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb.”

    apart from the fact that dr. strangelove was at least partly based on these two – i.e. werner von braun and edward teller; the staunch advocacy of the deterrent theory (manifested by sdi) by both von braun and teller is also in line with strangelove’s doomsday machine principle.
