I don't know aout the font's name, but it was hand-lettered by graphic artist Pablo Ferro. When I was getting into this movie in my teens I was also into the new Talking Heads movie Stop Making Sense and, what do you know, same Ferro title design. Pretty cool, I thought.
Barry Sonnenfeld also used the font for the opening of Men in Black, in homage to Kubrick.

Ferro also designed the classic trailer to the film, which Kubrick allegedly said was "better than the movie." It's on all of the DVD releases of the film, but for some reason they left it out of the Blu-Ray.

Dr. Strangelove is a great movie. I've never been able to see it on the big screen, but I've watched it countless times on video.
