Dr Strangelove, available on a new special edition DVD. Fred Kaplan has an excellent review of this movie here.The lecture ends with a brief examination of the 10 methods for achieving credibile threats promises and comittments from Dixit and Skeath ch10 - but i was running short of time and skimped on this lecture 2008 does a better job .
