Flash back to the beginning of Maple Leaf with It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World on Monday, October 13th at the First Christian Church Lighthouse, 800 S. Main. With this all-star Cinerama epic, producer/director Stanley Kramer vowed to make "the comedy that would end all comedies." The story begins during a massive traffic jam caused by reckless driver, who before (literally) kicking the bucket, cryptically tells the assembled drivers that he's buried a fortune in stolen loot, "under the Big W." A cast of hilarious characters set out on a mad scramble to find the treasure all the while being monitored by a scrupulously honest police detective. Virtually every lead, supporting, and bit part in the picture is filled by a well-known comic actor of the 1960s.
