Editorial Reviews

Based on the tragic 1939 voyage of the SS St. Louis. 937 Jewish Germans are offered safe haven in Havana, Cuba, before the start of WWII. They depart Hamburg in high spirits, looking forward to their new life. The trip is thwarted when passengers are not allowed ashore once they reach their destination.

DIE, Lionsgate, just DIE now, please.

The ship is enroute to Havana but the Nazi government made a deal with some Havana officials not to allow them to dock or let anyone off.
Brendan M
It is darkly photographed, which adds to the atmosphere of the story and sets and costumes are all authentic and well done.

The ill fated voyage of the SS.St Louis has long passed into folk lore as one of the nazi propaganda machines more devious creations. All courtesy of Dr Joseph Goebbels. Briefly the idea was to allow a specially selected group of some 900 jewish refugees to leave Germany ostensibly to Cuba and then wait for the fallout when their visas were refused entry first by Cuba then the US, Canada and other so-called 'democratic' countries. The reasons given for refusal were couched in political jargon but the underlying translation was, 'sorry but we dont want to be overrun by thousands of jewish migrants, take your problems elsewhere'. Juden ist verboten !. The nazis would chomp with glee at these actions which would of course support their aryan theories that the jews were a race apart, and that the policies of other nations were indeed no different from Hitlers germany. Sad to say the plan worked all too successfully.
The star studded cast here give mixed portrayals of a cross section of the ships passengers. They are led by Oskar Werner and Faye Dunaway as Egon & Denise Kreisler. Max von Sydow gives an understated performance as the beleaguered ships captain, determined to stay neutral and non-political despite being caught in the middle of some diplomatic pointscoring. After the war his courage and bravery is honoured by world jewish congress. Lee Grant tends to overact her role but unforgettable is James Mason as Remos, the incorruptible foreign minister determined to save two young girls following a personal appeal by their father to a certain influential high class prostitute. Played superbly by Katherine Ross her parents are also on the ship and their is a brief but tearful reunion scene as the mother realises her daughters true profession.

There seem to be multiple versions of this film, perhaps due to its length. I've always wanted to view an intact version, but this obviously isn't it. For some reason, Lion's Gate, which used to be a fairly reliable DVD producer, has taken it into their collective stupidity to release their films in full screen. What are planning next...video tape?

THIS IS A VERY GOOD MOVIE BASED ON A GREAT BOOK OF THE SAME TITLE,BUT
WHY IS THIS DISC NOT IN 1:85:1 WIDESCREEN INSTEAD OF PAN AND SCAN??
ALSO THERE IS A 182 MINUTE VERSION OF THIS FILM WHICH WAS RELEASED
ON VHS TAPE - WHERE IS ALL THIS EXTRA FOOTAGE?? THIS DISC EARNS ONLY
2 STARS - THE MOVIE REALLY DESERVES 4 STARS FOR QUALITY

DO NOT BUY AT ANY COST!

The movie is excellent, but this DVD is one of the worst I've ever seen.

All I can say is Lionsgate truly deserves to go out of business... There are no fewer than FOUR fatal things wrong with this release:

1. A cut 158 minute print
2. A Dual sided DVD with a 2 1/2 hour feature only 4.8 GB out of 8.5 GB available, which results in an abominable average bitrate of 4.21 Mbits/sec... The whole transfer is a soft, muddled mess, riddled with compression artifacts.
3. NO EXTRAS
4. Pan and Scan which isn't even an open-matte transfer! Adding even more insult, the END CREDITS are PROPERLY LETTERBOXED in the OAR of 1.85:1!!

DIE, Lionsgate, just DIE now, please.

Format: VHS Tape
VOYAGE OF THE DAMNED, Sir Lew Grade's star-studded dramatisation of the infamous SS St. Louis affair, is absorbing and harrowing viewing. The cast is truly amazing and most of the characters come directly from real-life people caught up in the drama. During World War II, 937 Jewish citizens were curiously allowed to leave Germany and emigrate to Cuba. While many believed the offer to be a trap, most took their chances and decided to flee from the impending Holocaust. Sure enough, once the ship docks in Havana, the passengers are refused entry and their visas' are cancelled. With country after county refusing to take them, the Captain has no other option than to return to Germany...

The escalating horror and dread onboard the ship is perfectly-pitched amongst the strong cast, with standouts including Faye Dunaway and Oskar Werner as Dr. and Denise Kreisler; Max von Sydow as the Captain; Lee Grant as Lillian Rosen (with Lynne Frederick as her daughter); Dame Wendy Hiller as Recha Weiler; Julie Harris as Alice Feinchild and Helmut Griem as the menacing Otto.

The cast also features Malcolm McDowall as the sympathetic young Captain's steward; Katharine Ross as the frantic daughter in Havana trying to save her onboard parents; Paul Koslo as Aaron Pozner and Ben Gazzara as Morris Troper, who becomes one of the refugees' most ardent champions and saviours.

The rest of the cast includes Janet Suzman, Victor Spinetti, James Mason, Luther Adler, Nehemiah Persoff, Denholm Elliott and Georgina Hale. Originally shown on TV in two parts (179 mins); and the cinema version runs for 155 mins with several altered scenes and cuts.

All-star cast (Faye Dunaway, Oskar Werner, Sam Wanamaker, Maria Schell, Julie Harris, Max von Sydow, Wendy Hiller, etc.) recreate the true and gripping story of a shipload of Jews seeking to emigrate from Germany during the Second World War. They have been granted passage on a German ship but then cannot find a country that will take them in.
Beautifully executed from start to finish, this movie is based on the book of the same title. It has great acting, interesting characters and a poignant story. The action of the movie has an upbeat ending, but the final frames of the movie inform us of the ultimate fate of each passenger.
