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.

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.

A good movie

“To be honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it did win the Best Picture Academy Award back in those days, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, while this movie started, I suddenly remembered that I actually read this book maybe 30 years ago when I was a kid and I remembered how much I actually loved the damned thing at the time. Well, this movie is usually considered the best adaptation of this classic book and, indeed, they definitely got the tone right. Seriously, I was actually quite in awe during the flamenco scene and I thought the damned thing could turn out to be a seriously awesome adventure flick with so many exotic locations accurately depicted.
