Show Boat 1929

Universal's Motion Picture Triumph!

This film sticks very closely to the Edna Ferber novel, rather than the musical on which the novel is based. There are only two major changes from Ferber's book : *Julie in this version is a white woman, not a racially mixed one; therefore she and her husband are not unlawfully married. * Ravenal returns at the end, instead of dying as in the novel
