Five Weeks in a Balloon

Daft Irwin Allenisation of an early Jules Verne story, with the motley likes of Red Buttons, Fabian (singing the rotten title song, natch), Barbara ‘Jeannie’ Eden and Peter Lorre sailing over Imperial Africa in said contraption, with fairly predictable results. Summed up by the poster tagline – “Climb aboard for the fun-venture of the year!” What is this, Yogi’s Treasure Hunt?
