As glib as Stanley Kramer often is, there is probably nothing glibber in his entire output than this Abby Mann adaptation of Katherine Anne Porter's novel about passengers on a German ocean liner in 1933. The cast, however—which includes Oskar Werner, Vivien Leigh, Simone Signoret, Lee Marvin, Jose Ferrer, George Segal, Elizabeth Ashley, Jose Greco, and Michael Dunn—is invited to act up a storm, which intermittently gives this self-congratulatory black-and-white allegory (1965) whatever distinction it has.
