In a lively discussion with Lord Kelvin, inventor Phileas Fogg states his belief that it's possible for someone to travel around the globe in a mere 80 days. Kelvin challenges him to prove it, and adds a wager: if Fogg can't circumnavigate the globe in 80 days, he'll have to give up inventing forever. Fogg and his crew of two take the challenge. They travel by train, boat, balloon, horseback, or any other means at their disposal. However, Fogg and his companions are accused of involvement in a bank robbery and have to clear their names as well

Captain Geoffrey Thorpe is the terror of the Spanish Main, striking crippling blows against the oppressive Spanish war machine, freeing English slaves from the galley ships and filling England's coffers with Spanish gold--with the tacit approval of England's Queen Elizabeth I. When the dashing Thorpe raids and sinks a diplomatic vessel bringing ambassador Don José Alvarez de Cordoba and his beautiful niece Dona Maria to England, he's gentlemanly enough to deliver them safely onto English shores--along with the galley full of wrongfully imprisoned slaves. Smarting from this insult, Don Alvarez conspires with the duplicitous Lord Wolfingham to stop Thorpe and smash the Sea Hawks: the small fleet of privateers that stands between England and King Philip of Spain's thirst for global domination!

War. Freedom. Loyalty. Love. Manhood. Ernest Hemingway's most powerful themes are gloriously captured in Islands In The Stream. George C. Scott and director Franklin J. Shaffner, who teamed so memorably in Patton, reunite in this compelling version of "Papa" Hemingway's posthumous novel. Scott plays Thomas Hudson, a sculptor whose self-imposed isolation in the Bahamas is ended by two forces: the visit of his sons ... and the outbreak of World War II. The film is touching in its details of a father's love- and heroic in its defiance of tyranny. The rich sweep of a literary legend washes over Islands In The Stream
