Written by: Richard P May, Warner Brothers Issue 51 - December 1997
I recently asked Warner Brothers about the current state of 65mm camera negatives of "Around the World in 80 Days" and if the film is going to be restored. The 65mm negatives was reportedly deteriorated beyond repair. Read Richard P. Mays answer here:

Richard P May replies:

 
Warner Brothers has both the 30fps and 24fps original [65mm] negatives. This picture is in no way going to be a lost film. These negatives are stored in archival conditions. Some tests are planned in the near future to check condition. Without actually making some section prints one can't make a statement whether or not the negative is in poor condition. As far as I know, we have not been approached by Mr. [Robert] Harris, but at any rate have the talent in our company to do this work in-house. A decision regarding full restoration has not yet been made. Warner Brothers is very concerned with proper storage and preservation of all their films, and this ["Around the World"] is no exception.
