It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (12)

Featuring an an all-star cast of comedians, this laugh-out-loud adventure comedy returns to the Cinerama screen.

Beginning with a substantial traffic jam caused by reckless driver Smiler Grogan (Jimmy Durante), the story soon turns into a zany pursuit of a buried fortune by a miscellaneous group of vacationing motorists.

Produced and directed by Stanley Kramer, it was his first venture into directing comedy—and it certainly paid off. The result is an epic screwball picture, full of unforgettable scenes, memorable characters and hilarious dialogue.

Introduction

This screening will be introduced by Karen Kramer, wife of Stanley Kramer, via video.
