    Undoubtedly one of the most celebrated tales of all time, this is both high-octane thriller and fascinating travelogue.

Naturally, he immediately sets off, accompanied by his French manservant, Passepartout. They are pursued by a police officer, Detective Fix, who is foolishly convinced that Fogg is a bank robber. Much hilarity ensues.
