Based on Jules Verne's novel, this Disney film is about French scientist Jacques Paganel (Maurice Chevalier) who finds a note in a bottle that tells the location of long-missing Captain Grant (Jack Gwillim). Paganel and Grant's children, Mary and Robert (Hayley Mills and Keith Hamshere), set out on an adventure to South America in search of the missing sea captain. They encounter an avalanche, floods, wild animals, and a volcano while searching South America–only to find that they should be in Australia instead of South America. With help from former crew member Bill Gaye (Wilfrid Brambell), the children and Paganel finally accomplish their goal and find the missing captain.
