  • Excerpt: The vintage 65mm elements were scanned at 4K with impressive results: The exceptionally well-composed 2.76:1 frame boasts minimal grain, superb detail, and well-saturated colors.

  • Summary: As unintentionally hilarious as it may sound, evidently producer-director Stanley Kramer rejected It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (that's five—count 'em—five "mads") for the title of his epic 1963 all-star comedy, fearing a quintet of adjectives was overkill.
