It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World

Three cars and a moving van witness a man drive over a cliff in a car. When they pull over to see what happened, the man tells them about $350,000 he secretly buried "under a big W." They agree to not let the police know and all start racing towards the location of the money. They don't realise they are under police surveillance the whole time they are en route and do everything but kill one another in trying to get to the money first.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Dick Shawn and all the characters find the box of money under the big W, Shawn has just thrown Jonathan Winters out of the hole so he would have room to work. But in the next five edits, Winters is both in the hole helping Shawn struggle with the box and is also shown standing outside the hole observing himself along with the others.
