Entertainment Weekly - 05/28/2004
"[T]he Oscar-winning epic's colors really pop, and the performances remain vivid too."

"Producer Michael Todd gambled his way to the best-picture Oscar and four more with the star-studded movie of Jules Verne's balloon-less novel."

Description by OLDIES.com:

Winner of five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Michael Todd's lavish production of the Jules Verne adventure classic stars David Niven as globe-trotting Phileas Fogg, with Cantinflas and Shirley MacLaine as his companions. Dozens of cameos, including Frank Sinatra, Marlene Dietrich, Ronald Colman, Buster Keaton, and more.

Product Description:

David Niven is perfect as an imperturbable English gentleman who attempts to win a bet by circumnavigating the globe in 80 days. The Jules Verne story, 100 locations, 40 cameo appearances by Hollywood players, a Victor Young score, and S.J. Perelman among the writers guarantee delightful family fare. The beginning of the film features a prologue by Edward R. Murrow, the esteemed television journalist, and it includes the first film to be based on a Jules Verne novel, Georges Melies's A TRIP TO THE MOON from 1902.

Plot Keywords:

    The beginning of the film features a prologue by Edward R. Murrow, the esteemed television journalist. It also includes the first film ever to be based on a Jules Verne novel, Melies's A TRIP TO THE MOON from 1902. Georges Melies was one of the earliest French filmmakers whose films still exist, and his film of the Verne novel was about 3 minutes long.
  • Shot in Todd-AO, and Eastmancolor.
  • Winner of 67 international best picture honors.
  • Although the film won the Golden Globe award for Best Motion Picture--Drama, Cantinflas received the Golden Globe for Best Actor--Musical/Comedy.
