Summary: 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! The large stellar cast reads as the Who’s Who in comedy, with great performances by Spencer Tracy, Edie Adams, Milton Berle, Sid Caesar, Buddy Hackett, Ethel Merman, Mickey Rooney, Phil Silvers, Jonathan Winters, Peter Falk, Jimmy Durante, and others, including fun cameos by Buster Keaton, Jack Benny, Don Knotts and the Three Stooges.
