It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World

An enjoyable if somewhat overlong star-studded extravaganza; the actors are outrageous and sometimes downright hilarious! An outlaw, trying to out-drive the cops on a mountainous road, flies off a curve and plummets downward. People who witness this accident, runs down the hill to see if there is anything they can do to help. It's too late for the outlaw, but he mutters something about a big stash of money under a big 'W'. Thus starts the wacky race for this hidden treasure! Ethel Merman does the best performance of them all who plays the loud mouthed mother-in-law. Very fun, but the actors have a tendency to get carried away but that's forgivable because they are hilariously comical!
