Classic Film Series
SHOW BOAT

Sunday, February 5, 2017, at 2:00 pm
Dunaway Center, 23 School St., Ogunquit

Filmed previously in 1929 and in 1936,  this third adaptation of Jerome Kern’s Show Boat was shot in Technicolor in the typical MGM lavish style in 1951, with a production spread out from the MGM back lot to the Mississippi itself.  Produced by Arthur Freed and directed by George Sidney, the film stars Kathryn Grayson, Ava Gardner, and Howard Keel,  with Joe E Brown,  Agnes Moorehead, and the sensational dancers Marge and  Gower Champion.  But arguably, the two biggest stars of the show are the magnificent baritone William Warfield,  and the Show Boat itself.  When the two get together for the finale reprise of “Ol Man River”, the effect is memorable.
