+1 for choices 1-3. Don't know the others.

I saw Mad Mad World as a little kid with my parents, but never since. But it impressed me enough that I still remember Spencer Tracy kicking the bucket and the importance of a certain scenic element (I am being vague so you can fully enjoy it if you watch it).

Oh - I did see that as a child (and remember 'The Big W') and enjoyed it.

SPOILER ALERT

Not to quibble, but l believe it was Jimmy Durante who kick's the bucket at the beginning... One might say that Mr. Tracy walk's away with the bucket at the end.

My memory is probably at fault.
But it's not a spoiler because of the nature of that particular joke.
