Do you remember that 1964 movie "Doctor Strangelove," the story about a crazed German military advisor to the President of the U.S.?

Stanley Kubrick, the movie's director, reports that none other than Dr. Henry Kissinger was the personality that inspired the character of the mad scientist.

According to the "Los Angeles Herald Examiner" Kubrick claims to have met Kissinger at a party when the film was being planned. At the time, Kissinger was a Harvard professor, active in foreign affairs, and a special foreign policy advisor to Nelson Rockefeller.

Kubrick was apparently so struck by Kissinger's demeanor that he decided to incorporate elements of the future Secretary of State's personality into the character "Doctor Strangelove."
