Around the World in Eighty Days

  • Film

Time Out says

Mike Todd's inflation of Jules Verne, with Niven as Phileas Fogg and the Mexican comedian Cantinflas as Passepartout, becomes an interminable travelogue interspersed with sketches in which star-spotting affords some relief (there are cameos from hordes of luminaries ranging from Dietrich and Beatrice Lillie to Keaton and Sinatra). Some nice period touches, but the best bit comes courtesy of Méliès, whose 'Trip to the Moon' is used at the beginning.
