    Description

    Show Boat (Universal, 1929). Swedish One Sheet (28" X 39.5") Musical.
    Based on a book by Edna Ferber, which also spawned a successful Broadway show, this is the story of Magnolia Hawkes (Laura LaPlante), daughter of a nineteenth century showboat Captain. When her husband, inveterate gambler Gaylord Ravenal (Joseph Schildkraut) abandons her and her infant daughter, Magnolia is forced to use the talents earned on her father's boat to become a successful stage star. Like The Jazz Singer, this picture was released as a part-silent, part-talking version, retaining the song "Ol' Man River," and jettisoning all the rest of Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein's popular songs. With just minor wear to the upper border and a small chip from the upper right corner, the poster is ready for framing! Artwork by Eric Rohman. Folded, Very Fine.
