Overview
Take two legendary co-stars, a rip-roaring boys' own story, a fearless director and an eventful location shoot in Zaire and Uganda an you get The African Queen - the best loved of all adventure movies. During World War I, a hard drinking river trader (Bogart) and a prim missionary (Hepburn) are forced to take a hazardous river expedition together, encountering tropical hazards, nefarious German officers and a surprising romance.
Bogart's role won him his only Oscar. Hepburn puts in a characteristically sharp performance. With masterful direction from John Huston and a wonderful script from the classic C.S. Forester novel, The African Queen is a rare treat.
