Rating: 4/5 -- [A] grand, propulsive and plumly-restored slice of Technicolor derring-do. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Five minutes in, and cowriter-director John Huston has already set the stage for something besides your typical '50s jungle-bwana boogie. Full Review

Rating: 5/5 -- A ripping, gripping yarn, a surprisingly erotic love story and, as it happens, a premonition of Herzog's Fitzcarraldo. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- It's probably cameraman Jack Cardiff who deserves kudos for turning this odd-couple romance into such a colourful escapade through east Africa. Full Review

Product Description:

The boozing, smoking, cussing captain of a tramp steamer, Charlie Allnut, saves prim and proper Rose Sayer after her brother is killed by German soldiers at the beginning of World War I in Africa. Many quarrels later, the two set sail on the Ulonga-Bora in order to sabotage a German ship. Based on the 1935 novel by C.S. Forester, the wonderful combination of Hepburn and Bogie (who won an Oscar) makes this a thoroughly enjoyable blend of comedy and adventure. Later came the book (and Clint Eastwood film) White Hunter, Black Heart, which chronicled Peter Viertel's experiences observing Huston throughout the making of the picture.

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.
