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.

1 corrected entry
Directed by: Michael Anderson, John Farrow

Genres: Adventure, Comedy, Family, Fantasy, Romance, Western
Other mistake: When they are in San Francisco, notice the pianist. The keys he presses don't correspond with the notes he's supposedly playing. It's a little bit obvious that the music was recorded in advance.
Sir Francis Gromarty: One thousand pounds for an elephant? It's outrageous! You've been diddled.
Phileas Fogg: Undoubtedly. But it's not often one needs an elephant in a hurry.
Trivia: There was no balloon in Jules Verne's book. Thank to this film, most people now can't imagine "Around the World in 80 Days" without the balloon. (Gas balloon, not a hot air balloon as most people think).
