A newly-released convict crashes his car and 5 people stop to help him. With his dying breath he tells them there’s a fortune buried in Santa Rosita Park under “The Big W”! The motorists agree to help each other find the money and split it, but things don’t turn out as planned–in the most hysterical of ways! Nominated for 6 Academy Awards, this comedic masterpiece has 105 speaking roles and an incredible number of cameos.
