Its a mad, mad, mad, mad world…

Another clip from Stanley Kramer’s 1963 masterpiece “Its a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World” a film that contained both every comic actor working in America at that time, and also every set-piece comic situation.

In this clip, Buddy Hackett and Mickey Rooney have hired … just don’t worry about the script ok, the film is over 3 hours of stuff just like this ten minute clip, if you haven’t seen it yet then where have you been, get onto eBay right this minute and buy the dvd, its always on there.

The always excellent Colonel Hall from Bilko features in this clip as does a cameo appearance by The Three Stooges, the scene of the airplane crashing through a billboard is not CGI as CGI didn’t exist in 1963, its a real life stunt pilot flying a real life plane through a real life billboard as is the scene where it flies through an open aircraft hanger.
