    • Slim was hired for the part of Major Kong in "Doctor Strangelove" (1964) after Peter Sellers broke his leg, in addition to his being unable to mimic a Texas accent as well. He was the third choice, after John Wayne and Dan Blocker refused the part, and director Stanley Kubrick remembered his work from "One Eyed Jacks." (1961)
