‘Around the World in 80 Days’ (1956)

The globe-trotting hit and Oscar-winning best picture of 1956 found its way around the world to Oklahoma for a small amount of filming: In a scene in which the train is held up by a buffalo herd, that herd is at the Wichita Mountains National Wildlife Refuge. For some perspective on the movie’s popularity: According to Box Office Mojo adjusted figures, the movie’s $42 million box-office in 1956 would be the equivalent of $605 million at today’s ticket prices.
