THE AFRICAN QUEEN

Directed by : John HUSTON

Year of production : 1951 Length : 105 minutes

Synopsis

Three movie giants come together in this cinematic classic, combining the masterful direction of John Huston with the fabulous chemistry of Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn in their only onscreen pairing. Bogart won a well-deserved Best Actor Oscar for his role as disreputable river-boat captain Charlie, who forms an unlikely alliance with Hepburn's straight-laced Rose. Based on the book by C.S. Forester, this wartime romantic adventure sees the pair forced to travel together down a hazardous East African river. As they face dangers and devise an ingenious way to destroy an enemy gunboat, both discover new sides to their personalities and before long their passionate dislike turns to love.
