A Reasonable Sequel to its Academy Award winning predecessor
Other reviewers compare this to the other Stooge films and that's okay, but this is also a sequel to Jules Verne's AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS and more specifically the 1956 film starring David Niven as Phileas Fogg and Cantinflas as his servant Passepartout. Now a few generations later, the great grandson of Phileas Fogg, Phileas Fogg III (Jay Sheffield) is tricked into re-staging the bet that made his great grandfather famous. While scheming, two bank robbers recap the original story for the viewers benefit: The original Phileas Fogg makes a bet he can travel around the world in 80 days and at the same time is accused of stealing money from the Bank of England only for the real bank robber to be caught in the end. The scheming bank robbers decide if they rob a bank, set up Fogg III as the accused, and bump him off before he completes his journey, then they will get off scot-free. And so we have a second journey around the world this time with the added handicap of not being allowed to spend any money while doing it. In steps the stooges as Fogg III's man servants who assure Fogg "we're born chiselers" and will have no problem escorting Fogg around the world without spending a dime. Whereas the original group rescues attractive Indian Princess Aouda (Shirley MacLaine), the new group rescues attractive American tourist Amelia Carter (Joan Freeman). The stooges comedy is much broader than Cantinflas and though both get top billing in their respective films, this was a Three Stooges vehicle. Similar to their other film efforts their co-stars play it mostly straight. In black-and-white and obvious back-lot locations, this is on the opposite side of the production scale of its Academy Award winning predecessor, however, it does a good job in creating a reasonable sequel.
