Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Columbia Pictures agreed to provide financing only if Peter Sellers played at least four major roles. In their eyes, Sellers playing multiple roles was one reason Lolita was so successful.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): The bombs aboard the B52 are 20 and 30 megatons. However, the stock nuclear test footage used for the target strike are taken from kiloton sized devices: Greenhouse Easy (40 kt) and Upshot-Knothole Grable (15kt). The end sequence also consists of mainly kiloton-sized tests with a few low megaton blasts; the first blast being the largest (Ivy Mike - 10 Mt). None of these approach the 100 Mt of the Doomsday Machine bombs.
  • Tracy Reed, the only female seen in the film, plays Turgidson's secretary Miss Scott, was billed in some early adverts as 'Miss Foreign Affairs'. This was due to her also appearing as that character in the centerfold of Playboy magazine (June 1962), which is read by Major Kong in the cockpit. The magazine covering her butt is Foreign Affairs.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Talking about the doomsday machine, the Soviet ambassador says that its existence should revealed in a few day, because "the premier loves surprises". Yet in the Soviet political system, there was no premier. The man in charge on the Russian side would be either the First Secretary or (from 1964 onwards) the Central Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.
