Weegee >>> Strangelove

From "Stanley Kubrick : a life in pictures" / photographs selected and with a commentary by Christiane Kubrick ; foreword by Stephen Spielberg.

"Weegee (otherwise Arthur Fellig) was a photographer Stanley always admired and he invited him over to England to work as the stills photographer on the film [Dr. Strangelove].
Peter Sellers was much taken with Weegee's accent -- a high-pitched yet muffled amalgam of Newyorkerese and German -- and this was the inspiration for the voice Peter created for Dr. Strangelove."
