Based on a Jules Verne novel, this airy 1962 comedy lifts off when Sir Cedric Hardwicke as 19th-century explorer, Fergusson, sets off in a unicorn-shaped balloon to claim a remote piece of Africa in the name of the British Empire. He spends five weeks in the air with a highly unlikely crew, including Red Buttons as reporter Donald O'Shay, Richard Haydn as the absent-minded professor Sir Henry Vining, and his assistant Jacques played by Fabian. In addition, Barbara Eden as teacher Susan Gale, along with Peter Lorre, Herbert Marshall, Reginald Owen, Mike Mazurki and Billy Gilbert appear. Their tongue-in-cheek high-jinx include numerous near-death experiences, sandstorms, romance, an encounter with Henry Daniell as the evil Sheik Ageiba, and the rescue of a native girl Makia, played by Barbara Luna, from a slave trader.
