Did You Know?


This movie used one hundred forty sets built at six Hollywood studios, as well as sets in England, Hong Kong, and Japan. It also set several records. The cast and crew flew over four million miles. Casting included 68,894 extras in thirteen countries, and 74,685 costumes were designed, made or rented for the movie. The 1,243 extras listed on the IMDb page (and in the original program book) were only the extras who worked on the movie in Hollywood. Ninety animal handlers managed 8,552 animals (3,800 sheep, 2,448 buffalo, 950 donkeys, 800 horses, 512 monkeys, 17 bulls, 15 elephants, six skunks, and four ostriches).


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.


At the unstable bridge, the engineer backs up the train to cross it at 30 mph. He doesn't back up far enough to accelerate to that speed.

Crazy Credits

There are no opening credits. The film begins with 'Edward R. Murrow (I)' narrating a prologue showing the history of flight. Then, the actual story begins with no opening credits whatsoever.

Alternate Versions

The DVD version of the film adds nearly 12 minutes of previously deleted material. Most prominently, a 4-minute scene with Cantinflas out-riding a group of Sioux on horseback after falling off the train. In previous versions, the scene ended after his falling off. Also, the full intermission, entr'acte, and exit music segments are re-instated.
