    Wonderful Music, great story, well acted. A tear jerker. One of the 5 best musicals EVER! Truly a classic in the class with 'Singin in the Rain' Dancing - Marge and Gower Chamion. Music by Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein.

    Showboat has to be one of my all time favourites. The chemistry between Howard Keel and Kathryn Grayson was electrifying. I have seen this movie more times than I can count and every time I see it I get the same enjoyment. Of course I always have a box of kleenex by my side for the end of the movie. I didn't realize Ava Gardner could sing. She has such a beautiful voice. I can't wait to see it.

    The Boat that was made for the movie was named The Cotton Blossom. The boat was purchased by Lamar Hunt and was put up at his theme park, Worlds of Fun, in Kansas City in 1973. It had shows in and outside,it had a gift shop and had many weddings on the bow.When the new owners took over the park in 1995 they demolished that grand old boat and sent to a land fill in Kansas. It was a sad day for many. I have the brass door knob From the wheel house and alot of pictures. Paul W. Butler Sr.
