1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1,056 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
