MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD, WORLD Monday # 2

 Here's Madlyn Rhue, who's the object of Spencer Tracy's attention ("How 'bout some coffee Schwartz..?) in this early scene from IT'S MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD.  Too be fair, it's a bit of a sexist joke (but what the heck, it's 1963) and it was a gag that was totally ruined in the the old pan & scan days of home video. 

  This sequence is also a great example of what fun it is to watch MAD WORLD as along with Spencer & Madlyn, there also Charles McGraw (who seems to be paying attention to Madyln also), Alan Carney and just off screen is ZaSu Pitts. In addition on the other end of the telephone is Andy Devine with Stan Freberg in the background.
