Show Boat U rating

Oscar Hammerstein and Jerome Kern's classic musical brought to life in dazzling Technicolour.

Period drama 1951 108 mins

Director: George Sidney


One of three adaptations of Show Boat, George Sidney's attempt comes with a slightly altered story, but the same old songs we know and love. With gorgeous Technicolour shots of the Mississppi river, and a delightful performance from Ava Gardner, Sidney's Show Boat is another brilliant adaptation of the beloved stage show.
