The Champagne Safari is a 1995 documentary film about millionaire Charles E. Bedaux. Bedaux held an expedition in 1934 which he named after himself, the Bedaux Expedition. He and his caravan of more than 100 people set out to travel from Edmonton, Alberta to Telegraph Creek, British Columbia. The excursion was over 1,500 miles and a good part of it had no roads or trails. Bedaux brought Hollywood film director Floyd Crosby and a large movie crew along with him with the hope he would later make a movie about the adventure. The expedition was never finished due to rough terrain and weather, but they did spend 4 months traveling the mountains. They ended the expedition at Hudson's Hope where they held an extravagant party to celebrate their success with the trails they did complete. Bedaux's footage of the adventure was lost, but years later it was found in a Paris basement. This documentary, directed by George Ungar, was made using the found footage.moreless
