Is this film good no, but is it truly bad no. It does not have a compelling story or character or anything like that. In fact most of the film is just to show off the cinematography and Cantinflas doing his various talents. Then the rest is running into the various cameos of various lengths. Not one bit of the film is brillaint at all but like the Greatest Show ON Earth there is some enjoyment to be found in this film. Just because of the cameos its big scope, and a certain nostalgia quality. Not really a mulitple watcher but there are somethings that can be enjoyed about it.

It's hard to say exactly why this film won Best Picture. I believe it was because a film of this size had never been made in its time. It has a very epic feel to it, what with so many different places around the world visited. Aside from that, however, this film seems to be nothing but a fun but long watch.

I've always found the story in the film to be intriguing. Traveling the world would certai...
