Show Boat is a spectacle with the River Boat Cotton Blossom as its stage of production. The all star cast is highlighted by one of the finest voices to sing on screen. That would be William Warfield as Joe singing his famous Old Man River. Marge and Gower Champion add visually stunning dance routines. There is a love affair to marry Howard Keel. They couldn't have picked more beautiful women of the time then Kathyrn Grayrson and Ava Gardner. Joe E. Brown as Captain Andy is a perfect choice. Once you get on board Cotton Blossom your in for a good time.

Stupid comment. The reception was standard for the times. This is an American masterpiece, with all its ugliness and bigotry on display. Enjoy it for the glorious music and smattering of racial injustice. LOVE IT.

Not my favourite musical but still an enjoyable watch. Has much darker themes then many musicals of the time. Worth a watch if only for Paul Robeson's Old Man River.
