Ship of Fools is a 1965 all-star ensemble drama about the passengers on a liner bound for Germany from Mexico in 1933. Various characters find themselves at a crossroads in their lives, including a drug-addicted countess (Simone Signoret), a baseball player past his prime (Lee Marvin), a middle-aged divorcee (Vivien Leigh) and a pair of young lovers (Elizabeth Ashley and George Segal) trying to find a relationship beyond their sexual chemistry. All the assorted "fools" are watched with wry compassion by a philosophical dwarf (Michael Dunn), who serves as commentator. Based on the novel by Katherine Anne Porter, the film is directed by Stanley Kramer.
