The African Queen

Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn go on location with Oscar-winning director John Huston in the African countries of Kenya, Uganda and the Republic of Congo, and in London to film a timeless jungle adventure based on C.S. Forester’s novel of the same name set in World War I Africa. Bogie gives an Oscar-winning performance as a grizzled skipper, who along with a missionary spinster (Hepburn), take a perilous journey down a tortuous river aboard a rickety old riverboat on a mission to sink an Imperial German gunboat. Bogie and Hepburn make an ideal pair; two misfits bonding together in a common goal. Directed by John Huston. Produced by Horizon Pictures.
