When was the last time that you saw one of Hollywood's all-time classic movie musicals on the Big Screen?  Don't miss this chance, and be sure to share the information with your friends!

This version of "Show Boat" was voted one of the top 25 Greatest Film Musicals by the American Film Institute, on 3 September 2006.

The song "Ol' Man River", as performed by Paul Robeson in this film, was # 24 on the American Film Institute's list of the top 100 songs featured in films.

The cost of production for the movie was more than Universal Studios could afford. Head of the studio, Carl Laemmle Jr., had to borrow money to finish the picture and to keep the studio afloat. When he reneged on an agreement to repay the loan, Universal Studios was taken over by a New York City lending institution. Laemmle Jr. lost his position at the studio his father had started and never again worked in Hollywood.

The original stage production of "Show Boat" opened in the Ziegfeld Theater on December 27, 1927 and ran for 575 (or 572) performances, depending on which source one reads.
