    Description

    It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (United Artists, 1963). One Sheet (27" X 41"). When escaped con Smiler Grogan's (Jimmy Durante) dying words hint at great riches buried under "a big W," four groups of strangers set off on a desperate race against time, and each other, to see who can unearth the fabled riches first. The very definition of an all-star cast, this film features such superstars as Spencer Tracy, Milton Berle, Sid Caesar, Buddy Hackett, Ethel Merman, Mickey Rooney, Phil Silvers, Jonathan Winters, Eddie "Rochester" Anderson, Jim Backus, William Demarest, Andy Devine, Peter Falk, Stan Freberg, Sterling Holloway, Buster Keaton, Don Knotts, and Carl Reiner, just to name a few. Paper from this title is always popular; this striking one sheet had fold wear, edge wear, chipping in the right and bottom borders, and missing corners in the top left and right, but professional restoration has expertly addressed all these minor flaws, resulting in a poster that any fan of classic comedy will be proud to own and display. Fine+ on Linen.
