Around the World in 80 Days

Audio problem: When Passepartout dances flamenco the tambourine player is out of sync with the music playing. After a while he even stops playing it but the music keeps going on.

Audio problem: When they arrive in Spain, Passepartout speaks to a Spaniard, whose heavy foreign accent shows he's not Spanish (it was Italian born and USA citizen Constanzo "Jose" Greco). It is so obvious and lame that his Spanish voice was dubbed with a real Andalusian accent in the Spanish release.

Continuity mistake: At the saloon, when a man throws a knife at Passepartout and stabs it on a piece of wood on the side of the table he knocks down the beer glass. A shot later the beer is standing upright and the wood has moved to the center of the table.

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).
