Ship Of Fools
Based on the novel by Katherine Ann Porter (which became a national best-seller within days of publication), Ship Of Fools is set in 1933 aboard a luxury liner bound from Mexico to Germany. Among the many passengers are Vivian Leigh (in only her third American film, following her Oscar-winning roles in Gone With the Wind, Best Actress 1940 and A Streetcar Named Desire, Best Actress 1952) as a divorcee desperate for love and lost youth. Also starring are Simone Signoret as a Spanish Noblewoman being deported as a political prisoner, Lee Marvin as an aging, alcoholic ballplayer, and Jose Ferrer as a budding Nazi whose brutishness foreshadows the holocaust to come. Their separate but interlocking stories, beautifully observed by director Stanley Kramer, serve as a brilliant microcosm of a world on the verge of war.

Warren Beatty and Jean Seberg co-star in this haunting drama about the obsessive love between a therapist and his patient. Vincent (Beatty), a war veteran, returns to his bleak Maryland hometown and takes a job as an occupational therapist at Poplar Lodge, a private mental institution for the wealthy. There, Vincent meets a young schizophrenic, Lilith (Seberg), an enchanting patient whose fragile beauty bewitches all those with whom she comes in contact - especially Stephen (Peter Fonda), a troubled young man. As Vincent is drawn even deeper into her private world, he too becomes captivated by Lilith and will lie, betray and even destroy to keep her. Soon Vincent himself can no longer determine which of the two worlds - his or Lilith's - is the sane one.
