George Feltenstein recently said on their podcast that they have the nitrate three strip technicolor negatives for Show Boat, and would be working on the restoration somewhere down the line. Who knows when thoughI'm still waiting for MGM's Show Boat on Blu-ray. I don't think the people at WB Archive realize what a popular musical this was in 1951. It was the biggest money-maker for the studio that year, and it won the Photoplay Gold Medal Award for Most Popular Movie of 1951. Granted it doesn't have Judy Garland (although she was set to play Julie La Verne before MGM fired her) but it's a terrific Technicolor valentine that deserves its place in the sun.
