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.

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.

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

“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 cadge the film's round-the-world location shots--not to mention the wheeling and dealing to convince over forty top celebrities to appear in cameo roles. David Niven heads the huge cast as ultra-precise, supremely punctual Phileas Fogg, who places a 20,000-pound wager with several fellow members of London Reform Club, insisting that he can go around the world in eighty days (this, remember, is 1872). ” read more

Ranking the Best Picture Winners: 1950s (10 movies items)

"This movie is representative of the pervasive epic illness that infected so many 1950s winner. I'm guessing that the studios saw TV as strong competition and decided to create films that were light on plot and characters but filled to the brim with spectacular (for the 1950s) images and glitzy dancing and singing. Around the World in 80 days is less like an actual movie and more like a boring travelogue slide show. There's room for action and adventure here but instead time is wasted on thing"

"10.10. 2010 Jules Verne's legendary story comes to life in Michael Anderson's long but charming adventure film. The digital restoration looks very bright with dynamic colors and the story also works as critique against aristocratic stiffness: When the adventurer has returned home he finally realizes how boring his life was before the great trip. The movie is a real treasure chest for the avid viewers: Several cameo roles include such names as Shirley MacLaine, Charles Coburn, Peter Lorre, Frank"
