Niven is perfect as an imperturbable English gentleman who attempts to win a bet by circumnavigating the globe in eighty days. The Jules Verne story, 100 locations, 40 cameo appearances by Hollywood players, a Victor Young score, and S.J. Perelman among the writers guarantee delightful family fare. The beginning of the film features a prologue by Edward R. Murrow, the esteemed television journalist, and it includes the first film to be based on a Jules Verne novel, Georges Melies's A TRIP TO THE MOON from 1902.
