...[The film] still sparkles thanks to one of film history's all-time casting coups...

Hollywood classics don't get much more classic or Hollywood than THE AFRICAN QUEEN... -- Grade: A-

This movie is in the DNA of rom-coms and buddy-cop comedies and fish-out-of-water tales and Indiana Jones (he bickers and fights Germans too! Plus, dirt beard!). Full Review

The result, although considerably more melodramatic in spots than C. S. Forester's novel, is a vastly enjoyable movie directed by John Huston. It was filmed, of course, right in Africa. Full Review

4 stars out of 5 -- QUEEN still plays like the most glorious triumph of faith against plausibility.

Bogart is hilariously crusty as a hard-drinking river rat who journeys downriver on a rickety steamer with a prim missionary... -- Grade: A

It gave Bogart an Oscar, and Katharine Hepburn a new line in prickly spinsters transformed by love....An imperishable delight...

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.
