Around the world in eighty days by Jules Verne( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1,063 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
Gunga Din by George Stevens( Visual )

73 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,035 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"You're a better man than I am, Gunga Din." In that same vein, fans of classic action-adventures won't find any better film than this exhilarating tale, directed by George Stevens. Cary Grant, Victor McLaglen and Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. star as cheeky soldiers of Queen and Empire who never run short of battlefield gallantry and chin-up heroics as they combat a murderous sect in colonial India. Stevens skillfully orchestrates teeming battle sequences and boisterous humor. And Sam Jaffe memorably plays the title role of the lowly water-bearer who yearns to be a solder and seizes the chance to prove his mettle. The years go by, but the fact remains: Gunga Din is "the Hollywood action-adventure yarn" (Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide). - Container
