Flick Pick: Around The World In 80 Days

Around The World In 80 Days
(UA, 1956)

Michael Todd's giant travelogue comedy, based on the Jules Verne novel, starring the incomparable David Niven, Chaplinesque latin comic actor Cantinflas, a barely post-teenage Shirley MacLaine in her third film, and cameos by practically every star in Hollywood. A tremendous critical and financial success, epic in scope and running length, universal in appeal, and recipient of five Oscars, including Best Picture.
