Which movie featured the most recognizable names?


Most as in numbers ... not notoriety.

In other words, as you watch the credits, you could count how many actors you recognize and come up w/ a number ... like 20.

Update 2:

Spike- 18 names ... pretty good.

Update 3:

Spike- How come Burton, Connery and Lawford are out of alphabetical order?

    Spike took my first thought, so I will say, 'likewise.'

    The one that always comes to mind is It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World. Silly movie, but lots of big and semi-big names, especially in comedy.

    It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World! I just checked the cast of this incredibly funny movie because I know it fell into this category. I was astounded how many of the cast were well-known. There must have been at least 30 or more that I knew, and I'm sure the ones I didn't recognize were well known to others.
