American director Orson Welles was considering the possibility of directing the picture, but due to previous engagements, ended up doing a stage production of the story. In 1986 it was made into a TV mini-series. The beginning of the film features a prologue by Edward R. Murrow, the esteemed television journalist. It also includes the first film ever to be based on a Jules Verne novel, the Melies' "A Journey to the Moon" from 1901. Georges Melies was one of the earliest French filmmakers whose films still exist, and his film of the Verne novel was about 3 minutes long. Shot in Todd-AO, and Eastmancolor. Winner of 67 international best picture honors. Although the film won the Golden Globe award for Best Motion Picture--Drama, Cantinflas received the Golden Globe for Best Actor--Musical/Comedy.

Description

Niven is perfect as an imperturbable English gentleman who attempts to win a bet by circumnavigating the globe in eighty days. The Jules Verne story, 100 locations, 40 cameo appearances by Hollywood players, a Victor Young score and S.J. Perelman among the writers guarantees delightful family fare. The beginning of the film features a prologue by Edward R. Murrow, the esteemed television journalist, and it includes the first film to be based on a Jules Verne novel, Georges Melies's A Trip to the Moon from 1901.
