With its all-star cast, Mike Todd’s version of the Jules Verne tale of “Around the World in 80 Days” is an Oscar-winning favorite that offers plenty of entertainment and more than 40 cameo appearances. This 1956 movie about a Victorian Englishman who bets that with the new steamships and railways he can do what the title says, stars David Niven as Phileas Fogg, Noel Coward as Hesketh-Baggott and Sir John Gielgud as Mr. Foster. When Phileas Fogg is challenged to prove his contention that a man can go around the world in 80 days, he bets his entire fortune and leaves with a new butler on a world tour. This Victorian adventure has a kicker -- the bank of England has been robbed. Is this Fogg's way of avoiding arrest? The detective following him believes so, and his butler is becoming unsure. “Around the World in 80 Days” airs Saturday, July 7, at 7 p.m. on KUED-Channel 7.
