Then there are a (very) few movies that have no music whatsoever. The
one which immediately springs to mind is Fail Safe.
OTOH and also on the merry topic of nuclear annihilation, Dr.
Strangelove makes wonderful use of music, from the Try a Little
Tenderness used in the opening scenes of B-52s refuelling in flight
to the final ironic We'll Meet Again over films of mushroom clouds.
And of course, When Johny Comes Marching Home, as Slim Pickens and his
crew battle to keep their B-52 aloft.
