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

"At the centre of his own universe sits matinee idol Garry Essendine: suave, hedonistic and too old, says his wife, to be having numerous affairs. His line in harmless, infatuated debutantes is largely tolerated but playing closer to home is not. Just before he escapes on tour to Africa the full extent of his misdemeanours is discovered. And all hell breaks loose. Noël Coward's Present Laughter premiered in the early years of the Second World War just as such privileged lives were threatened with fundamental social change. This edition of the play is published to coincide with the National Theatre's production running from September 2007. The text features an introduction that considers the directorial decisions and interpretation in the National's production."--Publisher's website

Waiting in the Wings : a play in three acts by Noel Coward( Book )

At The Wings, a retirement community for former actresses, plans are afoot for a charity evening; a group of younger actresses are to come to give a fundraising performance for the ladies of the home. This event, and the arrival of a new resident, piques rivalries among the former greats as the bickering badinage of their former days is revisited in their dotage with aplomb.

This happy breed, a play in three acts by Noel Coward( Book )
20 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
'This Happy Breed' shows a different side to Coward's writing. Rather than dealing with the affairs of the upper classes, we instead see the movements of the lower middle-class Gibbons family in the inter-war years. This crucial period of British history is made personal by the lives of Frank and Ethel, and their children, along with five friends. The disintegration of European relations is a backdrop to suburban ennui, socialist rhetoric, and patriotic strike breaking, as alliances fail and revive within a small dining room near Clapham Common. 'This Happy Breed' was first performed in 1942
Design for living, a comedy in three acts by Noel Coward( Book )
30 editions published between 1933 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
'Design for Living' is a wickedly witty romantic comedy of three amoral, glib and stylish characters and their unconventional and hopelessly inescapable entanglement. From 1930s Bohemian Paris to the dizzying heights of Manhattan society, a tempestuous love triangle unravels between the vivacious interior designer Gilda, playwright Leo and artist Otto - three people unashamedly and passionately in love with each other. With Coward's trademark piquant style, 'Design for Living' looks at dazzling, egotistical creatures and their self-destructive dependence on each other. Exploring themes of bisexuality, celebrity, success and self-obsession, 'Design for Living' is a smart and scandalous comedy. Initially banned in the United Kingdom for its risqué subject matter, the play premiered on Broadway in 1933
