Show Boat Reviews
This film was made for the masses and in it's own right is a good film & has fantastic colors & sensational musical numbers. By far the stand out performance was Joe singing 'Old Man River' quite an impacting performance.
Ava Gardner is also a screen sensation has a undeniable beauty on screen & just electrifies when singing. Overall it's good for what it is but does a drag a little & the weak script really shows & in between songs is a lot of filler. Worth a watch but I hear the 30's version directed by James Whale is far more better.
