Best Score – We’ll Meet Again

Purpose of Best Score.

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love the Bomb (1964)

Starring: Peter Sellers, George C. Scott, Sterling Hayden, Keenan Wynn, Slim Pickens, Peter Bull, James Earl Jones, Tracy Reed, Jack Creley, Frank Berry, Robert O’Neil, Glenn Beck

Screenplay: Stanley Kubrick, Peter George (source writer), and Terry Southern

Directed by: Stanley Kubrick

Music by: Vera Lynn performing Ross Parker and Charlie Hughes’ “We’ll Meet Again”

A comedy embraces the darkness when it ends with a worldwide nuclear holocaust tinged with a tongue and cheek big band valediction. Stanley Kubrick’s brilliant anti-nuke, anti-cold war film ended just like that with Vera Lynn belting out Ross Parker and Charlie Hughes’ “We’ll Meet Again”.
