UK / France, 1957 (MIFF 1961, Programme 24)

Director: Anthony Gross, Hector Hoppin

Originally intended as part of a full-length cartoon, based on Jules Verne's "Round the World in Eighty Days", this film was edited from material made in Paris before the war. It treats with wit and imagination the Indian episode in the adventures of Phileas Fogg and his servant, Passepartout.
