Show Boat movies

 The early version/s '29 '36 & 51

I'm mainly commenting on the "Ol' Man River " song/s

Paul Robeson '36...read on (Wiki) years ago that he was a lawyer & William Wakeful '51 color version...I"m glad both of these were made it makes for a fine contrast in films & a person could write an essay on just contrasting these two versions

I just wanted to note them here...gives me chills on my arms to hear these versions of "Ol Man River"

If I have an opportunity to watch both films I may come back here & add in a few items

The secondary characters in the '36 films are delightful

Don't Knock the Twist  1962 &  Rear Window 1954

The actress Georgine Darcy played in both these movies

In "Rear Window" she was "Miss Torso" & in "Don't Knock the Twist" she was Madge Albright & could she dance!!! Yes she could!!!

According to (Wiki) Hitchcock told her to go to Europe & study Chekhov & she would become a star ...she thought he was kidding & did not go
