SHIP OF FOOLS
(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 Fools is 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

Any reason why it's not Dennis Hopper's Hot Spot?

Several glaringly obvious ones, starting with the fact that The Hot Spot is in colour.

I assume that film's title is a reference to like a nightclub or something in an old noir but I'm not finding anything on that front.

The mob place in the '54 Dragnet film was called The Hot Spot, but that was colour too. I Wake Up Screaming was originally called Hot Spot, but it was a reference to the electric chair rather than anything specific in the picture.

I remember multiple people in the forum had mentioned that they didn’t receive THE BIG HEAT from their Sale orders last month. I still haven’t gotten my copy and I finally broke down and emailed Powerhouse. Has anyone else gotten their copy of THE BIG HEAT yet?

Yep. I emailed them the day I received my order, and they replied within 24 hours. Got a copy shortly after. Probably still needed to contact them before they'd send it out, despite it seeming like all orders were missing their copy.

Just to let you know, Sony Distribution have sent you a Mickey One, and we have sent you a Big Heat today from Head office.

Hopefully you should be all good once you receive those discs.


I got it last week. Very friendly custom service.

I’m late to this thread and label-do they ever hold sales? Or should I just buy now with some titles being limited.

Not bad for a label that didn’t even exist sixteen months ago.

I did go from owning zero of their releases to more than 20 this year. Funny though that of all the titles they could highlight, they pick Ghosts of Mars.

In all fairness, if they wanted to highlight more recent movies released by Indicator, there aren't much outside of Ghost of Mars (and Vampires). Considering how Indicator are releasing so little more recent movies, I'd say it's rather the highlighting of these "more recent cult fares" that seems like a bad writing idea.
