Most widely held works by S. J Perelman
Around the world in 80 days by Jules Verne( Visual )

27 editions published between 1956 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Phlegmatic, punctual Englishman Phileas Fogg believes in progress, science, and intellectual deduction. When a member of the Reform Club challenges him on the impossibility of completing a round-the-world tour in eighty days, he wagers his entire fortune to prove that he can do it. He is accompanied by his valet Passepartout, and followed by Mr. Fix, a detective who believes he is a notorious bank robber. Shot in 70mm, using the Todd-AO process (an extremely high definition widescreen film format), the film is notable for its picturesque, exotic scenery, international cast, and the plethora of stars in cameo appearances, all highly innovative at the time

"Premiering on Broadway with Bert Lahr in a multi-role "tour de farce", this picaresque comedy by S.J. Perelman follows the adventures of Lance Weatherwax, rich, young and naive who desires a career in the arts. As he falls through the rabbit hole of bohemians and dilettantes, he finds that true love, helped along by a little capitalism is the way of the world. Offering myriad opportunities for actors to clown in three or sometimes four characterizations during the evening, this fabulous farce by the author of numerous Marx Bros. films offers a brilliant kaleidescope of comic invention."--Publisher's description
