Synopsis

5-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo. Presented in 2.76:1 aspect ratio.

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 6 Oscars®, 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 side-splitting laughfest in history.
