Description
Come one, come all to the Show Boat show!

From novel (by Edna Ferber) to Broadway smash (by Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II) to three film versions (1929, 1936, 1951) to stage revivals. Like Ol' Man River, Show Boat just keeps rollin' along.

Produced by Arthur Freed and directed by George Sidney, this 1951 version of the saga of riverboat lives and loves has glorious stars (Kathryn Grayson, Ava Gardner, Howard Keel, Marge and Gower Champion) in Technicolor® radiance, a made-from-scratch 170-foot paddle wheeler, timeless songs and an equally timeless outcry against racial bigotry. "This was music that would outlast Kern's day and mine," Ferber said in recalling her first reaction to hearin Ol' Man River. She was right as rain.

      Comments about this product:

      Ian plays Miss Gardner's drunk swell in "Showboat". I am giving "Showboat", "ComancheTerritory", "Public Enemy" and other movies with Ian MacDonald to my daughter for Christmas this year.
      Along with a photo of him and her Greatgrandmother at Ian's wedding.
      I believe she will appreciate her family history in Hollywood!

      The product that I use all the time,has to be the one that make me very happy.Many times you learn the place,tradition,adaptation,etc.from seeing the movies.Some bad product can make you dislike the world and make you have a bad dream which is not good for your health.

            Kern's music is always wonderful, the performances are first-rate, but the pace is slow by today's standards.
