It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963) DVD9
After careening his car off of a cliff in the California desert, "Smiler" Grogan (Jimmy Durante) reveals the secret hiding place of the $350,000 he robbed from a tuna factory. Shortly before kicking the bucket, literally and figuratively, Grogan tells some good Samaritans the treasure is buried "under a big dubya" in the distant seaside town of Santa Rosita. Thus begins the 200-hundred mile race to Santa Rosita and a virtual who's who of 1960s comedy. The principal players include a seaweed salesman (Milton Berle), his reluctant wife (Dorothy Provine), his overbearing mother-in-law (Ethel Merman) and her lunkheaded son (Dick Shawn). Also on hand are a honeymooning couple (Sid Caesar and Edie Adams), two "odd-couple-ish" buddies (Mickey Rooney and Buddy Hackett), a volatile furniture mover (Jonathan Winters), a con man (Phil Silvers) and an uptight Brit (Terry-Thomas). The madcap race takes place over land, in the air, and through the water. The greedy opponents don't realize they're being tracked by the beleaguered Santa Rosita police captain T.G. Culpepper (Spencer Tracy) who has been waiting for a crack in the Smiler Grogan case for twenty years. And if all of that's not enough for you, the film is loaded with cameos by almost every popular comedian of the day, including Jerry Lewis, Peter Falk, Carl Reiner, Jack Benny, Don Knotts, and even The Three Stooges!
