Description: Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II's Showboat, based on Edna Ferber's 1926 novel, is a seminal American musical, the first to explore serious themes (most notably racism) and to truly integrate song with story and character. The plot follows three generations of a theatrical Mississippi riverboat family from the 1880s to the 1920s. ... (more)

"Ylipitkässä 30-luvun musikaalissa on ilahduttavan edistyksellinen näkemys esimerkiksi rotujen välisestä tasa-arvosta, ja sen laulut ovat hyviä. Paul Robesonin Ol' Man River -tulkinta on yksi hienoimmista Hollywood-musikaalin saavutuksista ja syystäkin filmin tunnetuin kohtaus. Valitettavasti elokuvan runko on kaavamainen ja vikaa on myös alkeellisissa teknisissä seikoissa, kuten joissain surkeissa roolisuorituksissa. Ohjaaja James Whalen tapauksessa puisevuus ei ole yleensä ongelma."

The Films of Paul Robeson (12 movies items)

"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. Except for the final ten minutes of the film and the three additional "
