Production Notes:

  • THE AFRICAN QUEEN was added to the Library of Congress National Film Registry in 1994.
  • Much of the action was filmed on location in Africa, under grueling circumstances. Katharine Hepburn wrote a book about the adventure, entitled "The Making of the African Queen, or How I went to Africa with Bogart, Bacall and Huston and almost lost my mind".
  • Screenwriter Peter Viertel also wrote a book on the making of THE AFRICAN QUEEN. His effort, WHITE HUNTER, BLACK HEART, was made into a 1990 film by Clint Eastwood.
