The original movie version of Show Boat. Most of this is silent, even the sound portion because a few of the sound discs are missing! So how was this as a viewing experience? A very varied 2 hours! No way the definite version of the stage play, but it's a solid first try. The best performance came from Emily Fitzroy as the strict old mother! What a face! Joseph Schildkraut was kinda bland in the silent portion, but came more alive for the sound sequences and was the one to make those watchable.
