A Tickle, a Giggle, and a Gangster, on the Last Show Boat

Every year there are cities in the U.S. and around the world that experience great floods. When television news shows us the floods, they always include a picture of cars and trucks submerged in water. Gasoline engines and water do not mix well together, and we all understand that these vehicles are ruined.

As a youngster, Ole emigrated with his family from Norway to a farm near Okauchee Lake in Wisconsin. While Henry Ford and others were engineering gasoline engines for automobiles, Ole was rowing his girlfriend Bess across Lake Okauchee to buy her an ice cream cone. After rowing across the lake and back again with his girlfriend, he was probably tired enough that his romantic mood was less than it should be.  To solve the problem of fatigue while courting his girlfriend, Ole Evinrude created the first practical outboard motor for boats.

In 1934 Ole died, and his son Ralph Evinrude became the head of the company. In 1955 Ralph Evinrude married Frances Langford, the star of this movie, and they enjoyed fishing together in a boat powered by an Evinrude engine for thirty-one years, until Ralph’s death in 1986.

Frances Langford is best remembered as the beautiful side-kick of Bob Hope, working together to entertain the troops during World War Two and the Korean conflict. If you have a memory of a lady singing, “I’m in the mood for Love,” it was probably the voice of Frances Langford singing her signature song.

In this adventure, Frances Langford is the star of a Show Boat that travels the Mississippi River from St. Louis to New Orleans, stopping at every town to put on a show. As our adventure begins, we meet a pair of gangsters who need to get out of town quickly before they are captured. They decide to take a trip on the show boat heading to New Orleans, and because of a comic misunderstanding, they will try to steal the boat from the good-natured and unsuspecting captain. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
