The crazy classic comedy involving an insane car chases to find the location of buried money. Many of the comedy greats of Hollywood were cast, and many, who were not, wanted to be, so they played cameos (including The Three Stooges, Jimmy Durante, Jerry Lewis and Buster Keaton). The couple which Sid Caesar and Edie Adams play originally was set for Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland. The mishaps, stories and legends about the making of the film are enough to fill a volume. It was a huge money maker. There were many Academy Award nominations in the category of sound, music and cinematography.
Attributed to Saul Bass, poster is folded and displays some shelf wear, but no pinholes. The bottom right corner is folded or was torn and has been repaired with archival tape. The fold junctures have been re-enforced with archival tape. Minor fold to top right corner, a few minor margin folds. NEAR FINE.
