Mark Twain's 1851 story about two runaway friends, a fostered white boy and an escaped black slave, who sailed on a raft down the Mississippi River in search of freedom and adventure.
The riverboat used in the first scene is the one which was especially built for MGM's 1951 Technicolor remake of Show Boat (1951) and originally used in that film. It was also used in the films Raintree County (1957) and Advance to the Rear (1964).
The buildings in on the river in Hannibal are the same ones seen when they get to Pikeville. A large red brick building with a widows watch on the roof.
