Showboat songs

Just reading through blogs, and Bill just had one on older singers. One of the references was to Helen Morgan singing Can’t Help Lovin Dat Man, one of my favorite songs from Showboat


The group dancing on the shore reminded me of a scene from Blazing Saddles


But back to Showboat, and the song I remember most, Paul Robeson

When I was a kid I saw a stage performance of SB but I didn't realize the racial part of the story. Years later when I understood why the woman had to leave the boat because of her heritage I think it taught more than a college class about prejudice.

Thanks for the mention.

I saw showboat on TV -- and loved Ol' Man River. Chills.

As for Blazing Saddles, my brother and cousin laughed so hard during the fart scene that I was totally embarassed

Gosh, haven't seen either of those movies for a very long time. Paul Robeson had an amazing voice.
