toward the end, after Slim Pickens' B52 has been damaged by the Russian missile and is treetopping in the Arctic watch carefully - the model they used for the shot is a B52 but the shadow on the ground is not a B52 with its ten jet engines and the trademark rakish tail but a B17 (four radial engines and classic rounded tail.....)

So the curtains are open because you are not afraid of close inspection. On the other hand, if you keep the curtains closed, then you signal to people that you are lazy and your house is probably not clean.
