Around The World In 80 Days

In 1872, Phileas Fogg's (David Niven) pronouncement that he could go Around the World in 80 Days seemed like a preposterous boast. But when some old boys at the Reform Club suggest wagering a tidy sum against his swaggering assertion, the proud gentleman determines to prove his claim. With only ten minutes of preparation, a satchel of British currency and his newly hired manservant Passepartout (Cantinflas), the very proper English man sets off to transverse the globe.
