(Stanley Kramer, 1965)
Release date: 19 February 2018
Limited Blu-ray Edition (UK Blu-ray premiere)

Stanley Kramer’s star-studded, Oscar®-winning adaptation of Katherine Anne Porter’s novel about passengers aboard an ocean liner bound to Germany from Mexico in 1933 forms a potent allegory of a world drifting inexorably towards war. With its incredible cast – including Vivien Leigh (in her last screen role), Simone Signoret, Lee Marvin, George Segal, Oskar Werner and Jose Ferrer – Ship of Foolsis a powerful drama and a compelling viewing experience. It remains one of the finest ensemble pieces of the period.

INDICATOR LIMITED EDITION SPECIAL FEATURES:
• High Definition remaster
• Original mono audio
• Audio commentary with Nick Redman, Lem Dobbs and Julie Kirgo
Karen Kramer Introduction (2007, 2 mins)
On Board the Ship of Fools (2007, 28 mins)
Voyage on a Soundstage (2007, 11 mins)
• Original theatrical trailer
• Image gallery: on-set and promotional photography
• New and improved English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing
• Limited edition exclusive booklet with a new essay by Neil Sinyard, an overview of contemporary critical responses, and historic articles on the film
• UK premiere on Blu-ray
• Limited Edition of 3,000 copies

Thanks for posting this info, Alex.

I'm interested in Ship of Fools, which to my knowledge has only been released on Blu-ray by Mill Creek in a double-issue with Lilith.

A couple of questions to anyone in the know:

Is this a newer scan/workup?

Has Twilight Time been involved with this, or perhaps has this on their upcoming slate - given that the commentary track lists Nick Redman, Julie Kirgo and Lem Dobbs?

You may have already seen, but in the TT thread, Nick says they do NOT have SOF....it is still with Mill Creek in the US. They did a new commentary for Indicator.

Thanks Alex - Hadn't seen the latest updates, but just looked it up and reposting TT's response below for easy reference here. Good to see such collaboration - hands across the water and all that (which reminds me - taking my brood to see Paul McCartney in concert this Saturday!):

The commentary for SHIP OF FOOLS is new, recorded in the last 6 weeks or so - we had said in a recent thread that we have managed to record a few new commentaries, both for TT and a couple of other labels. ...TT does not have SOF - it is a Mill Creek title in the U.S. but it is one of Julie's favorite films so we are glad we could help out Indicator on this one.

I asked the question and NIck Redman replied that it's a new commentary just done six weeks ago.
