Around the World in 80 Days

Corrected entry: Toward the end of the Indians' attack on the moving train that carries Phineas Fogg and his party east from San Francisco, one shot that lasts several seconds is taken from beside the train, and the camera's line of sight is almost parallel to the tracks. During this time, the landscape in the background stays still. The train is not moving.

Correction: I reviewed this scene closely. You can see either the background or the train locomotive moving in each scene.

Revealing mistake: In the scene out West with the buffalo, notice the car driving in the distant background.

Trivia: There was no hot air balloon in Jules Verne's book. Thank to this film, most people now can't imagine "Around the World in 80 Days" without the hot air balloon.
