Razzle-dazzle showman Michael Todd hocked everything he had to make this spectacular presentation of Jules Verne's 1872 novel Around the World in 80 Days, the second film to be lensed in the wide-screen Todd-AO production. Nearly as fascinating as the finished product are the many in-production anecdotes concerning Todd's efforts to pull the wool over the eyes of local authorities in order to cadg... read more

Whenever anyone talks about bloated, brain-dead, insufferable star-riddled epics from the 1950s, the type of movie that they’re talking about is Around the World in 80 Days. As a picturesque travelogue of the entire globe, it can’t be beat. As an engaging story with well-developed characters, it leaves one wanting.

As all razzle-dazzle spectacles go, I suppose you could do worse... read more

Comedic, adventurous, and a great deal of fun. Phileas Fogg is a loveable gentleman who places a bet to go around the world in 80 days.

Description: Phileas Fogg bet his fellow club members that he can circle the globe in eighty days. That may not be impressive today, but in 1872, it was nearly impossible.

Filmsite's Greatest Crowd Film Scenes (35 movies items)

"This dubious Best Picture winner of 1956 starred David Niven as eccentric traveler Phileas Fogg, and was based on the famous escapist adventure book by Jules Verne. It was the largest scale film ever made - created with Todd-AO, a special wide-screen format. The film featured almost 69,000 extras and thousands of animals including sheep, buffalo, donkeys, horses, monkeys, bulls, elephants, skunks, and ostriches! The film also used 140 sets built at six Hollywood studios (as well as on location s"

Around the World in 80 Days

“Whenever anyone talks about bloated, brain-dead, insufferable star-riddled epics from the 1950s, the type of movie that they’re talking about is Around the World in 80 Days. As a picturesque travelogue of the entire globe, it can’t be beat. As an engaging story with well-developed characters, it leaves one wanting.

As all razzle-dazzle spectacles go, I suppose you could do worse. And perhaps it is impossible to make a movie out of Around the World in 80 Days that’s dramatically engaging, but this is still boring. Watch it for the cavalcade of guest spots and cameos in the film, most of which linger on the star for a prolonged period of time before moving on to the next one in this section. My personal favorites are Buster Keaton as the train conductor, although hearing the ” read more
