  1. Karthik's rating of the film Show Boat

    Including the sublime Ol' Man River by Robeson, an outrageous black-face by Dunne (+ a wonderfully telling reverse zoom) that (partly) exposes the artifice of classic Hollywood Blackness, sensitive direction by Whale--sharply attuned to role-playing of all sorts--& lovely comic performances (Dunne, Winniger), this is a fantasy that movingly overcomes the disaster of its male lead & the conventions of its time & genre
