About the Film
It's a mad, mad, mad mad farcical return to the days of the Keystone Cop comedies, on an Ultra Panavision scale, in this star-studded extravaganza. A multitude of people have been given a clue by a dying man (Jimmy Durante) as to the location of $350,000 in stolen bank money that he has buried. They cannot come to an agreement to seek out the loot as a cooperative unit, so they set out separately in a mad race to get to it first. They do not know that the state police are on to them and are simply allowing the loot-seekers to lead them to the stolen bucks. The loot-chasers are ruthless, devious, crackpot and very often dimwitted in their frantic, hilarious race. Stanley Kramer took an intermission from socially conscious subjects to direct this riotous comedy. Photography by Ernest Laszlo.
It's a mad, mad, mad comedy!
If you like a bundle of star names...a great car race across America....a stack of hilarious scenes with a twisting comic plot then this is the film for you! Comic idols from the fifties and sixties get together in this brilliant caper with Spencer Tracey in the role as a quiet cop coming up to retirement looking to solve his final case. A great film with great characters...enjoy!
If you haven't seen this film and you want to laugh until you cry, treat yourself to this classic. You won't regret it! Brilliant family fun.
It's a classic
If you combined a truck driver an old bag a dentist two chuckle brothers and a police man it sounds to me it's a mad mad mad mad world!!!!!!!!!!!!!
