Ladies & Gentlemen. Welcome to The Envelope Podcast. Here on The Envelope, we discuss & review every Best Picture Winner in the Academy Awards History.
On this episode, we discuss the twenty-ninth Best Picture Winner: “Around the World in 80 Days.”
Victorian-era Englishman Phileas Fogg proclaims before his fellow members of a London gentleman’s club that he can circumnavigate the globe in a mere 80 days, further boasting that he will bet the princely sum of 20,000 pounds on the success of his endeavor. With his stalwart manservant Passepartout alongside, he goes forth on his adventure, pursued by a dogged Police Inspector who suspects Fogg of chicanery. Directed by Michael Anderson & John Farrow, the film stars David Niven as Phileas Fogg, Cantinflas as Passepartout, Shirley MacLaine as Princess Aouda, and Robert Newton as Inspector Fix.
