Funniest film ever, ever...

A short clip from the funniest film ever made - bar none.

Stanley Kramer's "Its a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" (1963) features every comedy star of that era in a three and a half hour long procession of slapstick gags culminating right at the last scene with the banana skin slip.

A loose storyline involving a random group of strangers who witness the road death of the notorious criminal Smiler Grogan (Jimmy Durante) who manages to tell them that he has hidden his lifes criminal gains under "a big W" in Santa Rosita Park before (literally) kicking the bucket.

The next 200 minutes are filled with the race to get to Santa Rosita and claim the dough and include some of the funniest scenes that I have ever seen in a film, and I include the farting scene from Blazing Saddles in that assesment.

In the above clip Mickey Rooney and Buddy Hackett are trying to land a plane that they chartered from a drunk (passed out in the background) with the aid of Paul Ford (Bilko's Capt Hall)...

Buy it on dvd, you will not be disappointed.
