Movie Info

Two of America's most distinguished humorists, Oklahoma's Will Rogers and Kentucky's Irvin S. Cobb, costar in this film. Cobb isn't much of an actor, so it is Rogers who carries the comic weight of this fast-paced slice of Americana. The plot resolution hinges on a climactic steamboat race.

Audience Reviews for Steamboat Round The Bend

this is a delightful film and the first i've seen of the comedian will rogers, who was a huge star in the 20s and 30s. this was one of his last appearances, playing a medicine show 'doctor' on the mississippi who raises enough money to salvage a steamboat of his own. fast paced and farcical comedy and a lot of fun, altho that minstrel show negro step'n fetchit always bothers me. his part isn't large thankfully

Classic and charming in its own old Southern way. Will Rogers does a fabulous job as the captain of an old Mississippi steamboat, out to save his nephew from the hangman with the help of his nephew's wife, an outcast from the "swamp people." Along the way, he changes up an old wax museum to appeal more to his Southern audience - I loved the Civil War allusions. The steamboat race at the end is not to be missed! Love the combustion solution. The love story was sweet and selfless.
