NOTES

Some sources list September 23 as Mr. Kramer's birthdate.

"I am not completely conscious of the political or social significance of a film at the time of the selection of material. It may be something which appeals to me very much, perhaps emotionally, and it may be that I am attracted by things which are social in terms of my own emotions. That seems . . . to be the premise on which I start . . . In the last three films we have dealt with the problems of the Negro in America; the problem on the nuclear family, as it's called; and the problem of the right of a schoolteacher to teach freely . . . These have been things which I felt were dramatic because they were a cross section of the times in which we live." --Stanley Kramer, quoted in FILMS AND FILMING, June 1960

Kramer's biggest disappointment was "Ship of Fools": "I thought it would be a classic. Boy, was I wrong. I overproduced it and overdirected it. I blame myself." --Kramer quoted by THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 19, 1997
