It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World Full Movie With English Subtitles Online Download
The dying words of a thief spark a madcap cross-country rush to find some treasure.
Blockbuster comedy. Brilliantly simple, the plot concerns a caravan of motorists who witness a terrible accident on a dangerously winding California desert highway. The auto-crash victim, Smiler Grogan, reveals in his dying words that he has hidden a fortune of stolen cash, sending the drivers on a rambunctious race to see who can claim the loot first!
This great film is also one of the last special effects projects created by master FX artist Willis O'Brien (King Kong, etc). And the story is as wild and wooly and imaginative as any Sci-Fi film ever made.
The central theme of the story (which is very well portrayed) is the mindless madness and greed which consumes human beings when faced with collosal monetary gain. The beauty of this colossal story is that every character in it -- even the peerless Spencer Tracy as the loyal police chief -- is not immune to sin of human greed!
Perhaps the most amazing thing of all is that this lofty moral message was presented to audiences in Cinarama! If you've only seen this comic classic on video tape, you've watched a classic through a keyhole!
But there's more to this remarkable story. After the film's initial Cinemascope release, the studio cut 38 minutes out of the original 192 minute running time. Years later, the prerecorded tapes were issued at the new (cut) 154 minute length. Several years went be, and only the most ardent fans missed the cut scenes.
Then a miracle happened. A widescreen print of the film was discovered in a old warehouse which was scheduled for demolition. And the print was -- amazingly -- the original 192 minute version! The missing scenes were added to a new version of the video tape, and the public was treated to the complete film after years of the cut version!
These missing scenes are not dull and unnecessary footage which the film is better off without. They add both humor and depth to this remarkable story of human greed and mishap. These scenes are identifiable by a slight difference in their color and contrast, but otherwise they fit in perfectly with an ambitious story which mixes comedy with sly comments on the human condition.
Director Stanley Kramer loaded his mega-movie with treats for every type of viewer. Fans of classic comedy are treated to frequent cameos by such giants as Jerry Lewis, Jack Benny, Don Knotts, Jim Backus, and the Three Stooges. For male members of the audience he presents the abundant charms of Miss Edie Adams in a torn and tight-fitting dress that shows off more than a little of the beauty which made her fame as the symbol of a certain series of cigar commercials the 1960s.
The editing of this three-hour-plus extravaganza a work of art unto itself. With a story packed with so many sub-plots, the story would have been a garbled mess if the editor had not skillfully alternate between each sub-plot. However, he did a masterful job of presenting each of the miriad stories in rapid succession, and this keeps the audience on the edge of their seats as they watch this mind-numbing story unfold.
Stunt fans watched pop-eyed as speeding cars soar into the air, and airplanes crash right through billboards and fly through open hangers. The car stunts weren't even matched (must less surpassed) until "Bullitt" (1968). The farcical battle between Jonathan Winters and two service station attendants results in the complete destruction of the building! This alone is a comic tour de force which no other film has duplicated.
The film's wild climax is achieved only with the help of FX wizard Willard O'Brien, when the principal cast members cling to a weaving firetruck ladder while a crowd of horrified onlookers gasp in terror.
The intermission at the film's halfway point is a rare gift to movie enthusiast; it allows the audience to stop during the film and talk over the parts they've already seen, and the parts that are still to come! Imagine what it must have been like to hurry back into the theater after the intermission and sit down to wait for the entire second half of his amazing epic of comedy.
Last but not least, there's this bit of film lore to consider: according to film historians, the original director's cut of this film was five and a half hours long! Before its release, the studio insisted that Kramer cut it down to three hours. He did, and later it was cut even more. But imagine seeing all of it -- the original epic comedy which last over five hours.
Even at three hours, this is undoubtedly the ultimate comedy film, a megafilm which is chucked full of gags which range from the subtle to the outrageous. This is a movie to be watched with your entire family. If you don't have a family, borrow one!
At the risk of being called corny, I have to assert my complete love of this zany movie. As a writer and teacher, I find it's a rare film (or any work) which can hold the same impact and resonance viewing after viewing. By that I mean to say that I immediately find myself in tears of laughter with every replay - which makes me out to be someone who would derive pleasure from just looking at shiny objects for hours on end; but that is not the case, at least not most of the time.
I think today's "comedies" have taken on a meaner spirit. Although slapstick is as mean as you can get in the genre of comedy - I mean that this particular style of comedy seems kinder in a weird kind of way. I don't hate or even pity these poor souls who have given into their baser selves and are completely overwhelmed by avarice. And I don't particularly take joy in their suffering through what may be considered some of the most brilliant pratfalls ever to be filmed. I relish the idea that any of us could succumb to lunacy if the price were right. Maybe not to the level in the movie, but something this side of sane. So the comedy is as sharp and full of wit and relevant today as it was in 1963 - adjusted for inflation of course.
The film, It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, opened in Chicago on Tuesday, November 19, 1963, at the McVickers Cinerama Theatre (Madison and State). The premiere was for the benefit of the Chicago Youth Centers.
Chicago Tribune, Tuesday, November 19, 1963:
by Herb Lyon
" . . . . Atty. Gen. Bobby Kennedy turns 30 tomorrow. [He's growing up!] . . . . Most of the Kennedy clan arrived in buses for the New York benefit premiere of Stan Kramer's "Mad, Mad, etc. World" Sunday night. Missing: The President and Mrs. Kennedy and the ailing patriarch, Joseph Kennedy. . . . Same flicker kicks off at the McVickers tonight with Kramer and Scene Stealer Jonathan Winters on deck . . . . " The turbulent comedy directed by Stanley Kramer in 1963 can certainly be considered one of the big classics in history of motion pictures. Like many other movies, this one is relevant for our page due to the enormous cuts.
While a so-called Preview Version with a length of 210 minutes resulted from a 5-hour-long workprint, Kramer himself made further cuts for its theatrical release (192 minutes). But that still wasn't enough for United Artists because they intended to show the movie in theaters as often as possible on one single day. As a result, the studio made further cuts on their own and the "final" Theatrical Version was only 154 minutes, almost the only option to watch the movie, even these days. Almost the only option because MGM and United Artists made the effort to edit a "Special Edition" in 1991.
This Special Edition contains footage found in the archives. Unfortunately, only 20 minutes of the footage could have been reconstructed but not any missing minute. So technically, the Special Edition isn't the original Director's Cut but Kramer was involved in the process, and so was screenwriter Tania Rose. The resulting version runs more smoothly and should be preferred. Admittedly, the new footage often differs from the rest and it's been reinserted roughly. Nevertheless, the positive impression overbalances.
Unfortunately, the longer version has only been released as US-VHS and US-LD so far. The DVDs and the recently released US-BD (which looks pretty amazing by the way plus it contains the correct aspect ratio 2.76:1 for the first time) only contain the Theatrical Version. Besides the US-VHS and US-LD, the only possible but rare option would be the US-TV. Though the US-DVD/BD contains "Extended Scenes" as bonus but that's not the real deal either.
However, in October 2013, it was announced that the Criterion Collection will be issuing a restored and reconstructed combo Blu-Ray/DVD of the Roadshow Version, though it will still be three minutes shy, and a few scenes will be audio-only with stills. This was an effort supervised by Robert Harris, who helped restore of "Lawrence of Arabia," "Spartacus," "My Fair Lady," and "Vertigo." It will be released in January, 2014. a5c7b9f00b
