keel boat

Show Boat (1951). The daughter of a riverboat captain falls in love with a charming gambler, but their fairytale romance is threatened when his luck turns sour.

This musical melodrama is a solid film, but one that doesn’t quite work for me. The performances are good, as is the look and direction of it, but it lacks chemistry or visual charisma, I guess? I don’t know. Something about it just fell a bit flat. If you like musicals though, it’d be worth giving this one a shot. 6.5/10.
