Stanley Kramer directs Spencer Tracy, Mickey Rooney and Phil Silvers in this blockbuster comedy where an ever expanding group of schmoos race against each other to reach some buried loot.
Nearly everyone talks in that ‘wiser than you’ wise guy patter that Silvers particularly excels at. This is all about excess and it just goes on and on and on. Long after the hook wears thin.
