St. Paul, Minn. — Stanley Kramer and It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World

Kramer became known as a director of "message movies," taking on tough subjects of the day, but it was his big budget, all-star shot at comedy that endeared him to many.

It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World starred the biggest names in comedy and was headed up by Spencer Tracy in a role that was a delightful change for the aging actor who went on to star in one more Kramer film before Tracy's death.
