David Niven’s birthday today, March 1st. Here’s the snipe from the 1956 United Artists photograph:
AROUND THE STUDIO…. David Niven wheels his way through the studio to the “Around the World in 80 Days” set with British aplomb on the two-wheeler assigned to him for the picture by Michael Todd, its producer. Here he wears a topee for the Far East sequences of the comedy adventure, based on the Jules Verne novel, in which he plays Phileas Fogg, the resourceful world traveler.
