Who's Minding the Mint? ★★★ 1967

A money checker at the U.S. Mint must replace $50,000 he accidentally destroyed. He enlists a retired money printer and an inept gang to infiltrate the mint and replace the lost cash, with predictable chaos resulting. Non-stop zaniness in this wonderful comedy that never got its due when released. Thieves who befriend Hutton include Denver of “Gilligan's Island” and Farr, later of “M* A* S* H.” 97m/C VHS . Jim Hutton, Dorothy Provine, Milton Berle, Joey Bishop, Bob Denver, Walter Brennan, Jamie Farr; D: Howard Morris; C: Joseph Biroc.
