The film centers on a rogue air force crew led by Jack. D. Ripper (Sterling Hayden) who mistakenly believes Communists are about to attack the United States. Ripper then launches a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union. Hilarity ensues when the president of the U.S. (Peter Sellers) and his war room advisers attempt to recall the plane and warn the Soviet Union of the impending attack. But the Soviets won’t go quietly.
