Mysterious Phileas Fogg is a cool customer. A man of the most repetitious and punctual habit with no apparent sense of adventure whatsoever he gambles his considerable fortune that he can complete a journey around the world in just 80 days… immediately after a newspaper calculates the feat as just barely possible…
