Around the World in 80 Days Reviews
However, it was fairly entertaining. Made so mostly by the scenery and excellent cinematography. Felt like a travel documentary.
The occasional humour also helps.
Performances are nothing to write home about. David Niven is overly stuffy as Phileas Fogg. (But that's all he knows how to do). Supporting cast have a host of big names in minor, sometimes very fleeting roles: Noel Coward, Sir John Gielgud, Trevor Howard, Frank Sinatra, Marlene Dietrich, John Carradine, Buster Keaton.
Certainly didn't deserve a Best Picture Oscar, but not that bad.
