It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World
Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Stanley Kramer. 1963, 180 mins. (plus intermission). 70mm. Please note that the film will be shown with a 20-minute intermission that will include police-call audio. With Spencer Tracy, Edie Adams, Milton Berle, Ethel Merman. This epic Hollywood comedy is a three-hour-plus extravaganza of slapstick excess that lets loose an unparalleled cast of legends—including Milton Berle, Sid Caesar, Buddy Hackett, Ethel Merman, Mickey Rooney, Dick Shawn, Spencer Tracy, and Jonathan Winters (just for starters)—in a wild plot about a hunt for buried treasure. With its super-wide frame, jam-packed with gags big and small, Stanley Kramer’s classic is endless juvenile fun that has retained an intense fan following.
