Zach learns about comedy and why it is so subjective – also a brief dip into aspect ratios, and a director who had something to prove. It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.
Spencer Tracy heads a hilariously zany cast that stars Hollywood’s greatest comedians (Milton Berle, Sid Caesar, Buddy Hackett, Ethel Merman, Mickey Rooney, Dick Shawn, Phil Silvers, Terry-Thomas and Jonathan Winters) and features cameo appearances by every joker and jester in the business, from Don Knotts and Jerry Lewis to The Three Stooges. Nominated* for six Oscarsr, It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World is “an explosive motion picture experience” (Variety). On a winding desert highway, eight vacation-bound motorists share an experience that alters their plans – and their lives! After a mysterious stranger divulges the location of a stolen fortune, they each speed off in a mind-bending, car-bashing race for the loot – and the most sidesplitting laughfest in history.
