Show Boat

A musical about the life on a Mississippi showboat of the 1800's. The plot: well that isn't the best aspect of the film, nor is it truthfully important. It's basically a love story between characters played by Howard Keel and Kathryn Grayson. Ava Gardner does a splendid job in her role as a washed up, alcoholic actress. The songs are very good and some are famous.
