Around The World In Eighty Days  (DVD)
This star-studded adaptation of the Jules Verne story, with over 40 cameo appearances, won several Oscars, including one for Best Picture. A Victorian English gentleman (David Niven) and his valet make a bet that they can circumnavigate the globe in only 80 days. They travel by almost every form of transport possible at the time, whilst being chased by an English detective who is convinced that Fogg has robbed the Bank of England. Re-made in 1988 with Pierce Brosnan and Eric Idle. Synopsis 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.
