Around the World in 80 Days (1956)
The book is always better than the movie, but they did a fine job with this film. I’m laughing as I look at this photo from the movie. Sometimes it truly amazes me how film makers bring the characters from a book, and the story, to life on the big screen. Apparently this is an Academy Award winning film. Rick and I watched it a few days ago and I’m still chuckling to myself. The movie is a 2 DVD set and there is an intermission!
Have you seen this movie? I’d like to hear from you. Enjoy!
Ooooh! I’ve watched the Pierce Brosnan adaption and the Jackie Chan one too … I didn’t even know that David Niven stared in an adaption! Will have to check it out …
How did you like the Pierce Brosnan film? I noticed our library has it and I was thinking of watching it. 🙂
I like it – you should totally try it out : ) It’s funny and Pierce Brosnan is great as always.
Have not seen this one, but I love watching old movies!
Goodness, I haven’t seen this one in years! Been so long I don’t remember a whole lot about it anymore… I do remember that I enjoyed it, though. 😉
