Around the World in 80 Days (1956)
Michael Anderson Company
A Victorian Englishman bets that with the new steamships and railways he can circumnavigate the globe in eighty days.
In 1872, an English gentleman Phileas Fogg (David Niven) claims he can circumnavigate the world in eighty days. He makes a £20,000 wager with four sceptical fellow members of the Reform Club (each contributing £5,000 to the bet) that he can arrive back eighty days from exactly 8:45 pm that evening."
