Strangelove model was somebody else
Sam Webb is misled (AJ 30.10.03). Dr Edward Teller was the model for Peter Sellers' brilliant portrayal of a singleminded (ex-Nazi) presidential adviser, not Henry Kissinger.
Nobody who saw Dr Teller's television lecture, advocating the use of nuclear explosions for major civil engineering (he suggested great new dams in Australia), could be left in any doubt or forget a chilly thesis.
