Disappointment
22 June 2020 | by eboepple-67757See all my reviews

It's necessary to remember the times in which this movie was made, so it's no surprise that the fabulous black singers (including the little girl) aren't listed in the cast. But it was a disappointment seeing that this was no more than a cheap knock-off of the Show Boat plot with a little criminal activity thrown in.
