  • American director Orson Welles was considering the possibility of directing the picture but, because of previous engagements, ended up doing a stage production of the story. In 1986 it was made into a TV mini-series. The beginning of the film features a prologue by Edward R. Murrow, the esteemed television journalist. It also includes the first film ever to be based on a Jules Verne novel, Melies's A TRIP TO THE MOON from 1902. Georges Melies was one of the earliest French filmmakers whose films still exist, and his film of the Verne novel was about 3 minutes long. Shot in Todd-AO, and Eastmancolor. Winner of 67 international best picture honors. Although the film won the Golden Globe award for Best Motion Picture--Drama, Cantinflas received the Golden Globe for Best Actor--Musical/Comedy.
