"Though I admit to liking the remake to some extent, this version is the iconic version that I always return to. If people truly want to see "Show Boat" this is the version I recommend. This version has a special quality that is lacking in the others. The version of "Old Man River" sang here by Paul Robeson is iconic. It captures all the suffering and tones of the song perfectly: "

"The 1936 version of Show Boat is considered by many film critics to be one of the classic film musicals of all time, and one of the best stage-to-film adaptations ever made. Ten numbers from the stage score are actually sung, with four others heard only as background music, and a tiny, almost unrecognizable fragment of the song "I Might Fall Back on You" is heard instrumentally at the beginning of the New Year's Eve sequence.
