Ship of Fools is a 1965 drama directed by Stanley Kramer, which recounts the overlapping stories of several passengers aboard an ocean liner bound to Germany from Mexico in 1933. It stars Vivien Leigh, Simone Signoret, José Ferrer, Lee Marvin, Oskar Werner, Michael Dunn, Elizabeth Ashley, George Segal, José Greco and Heinz Rühmann. It was to be Vivien Leigh's last film and Christiane Schmidtmer's first U.S. production. Ship of Fools was highly regarded, with reviewers praising the cast's performance but also noted the movie's overlong runtime. The movie was nominated for eight Academy Awards in 1966, including for Best Picture, Best Actor for Oskar Werner and Best Actress for Simone Signoret, and won for Best Art Direction, Black-and-White and Best Cinematography, Black-and-White. Both Werner and Signoret's performance, clocking just around 20 minutes, were some of the briefest performances to be nominated for the leading acting category at the Academy Awards.
