One of the all-time greats, "The African Queen" stars Humphrey Bogart (in his Oscar-winning role) and Katharine Hepburn as unlikely lovebirds who encounter the dangers of the rapids, the Germans and each other during World War I. In a quintessential performance, Hepburn plays Rose Sawyer, a missionary serving in the Congo. She is paired with boozy captain Charlie Alnut (Bogey, in a wonderfully endearing performance) when she must flee her village from the enemy army via Bogey's dilapidated boat. Aided by two veteran performers at the peak of their talents and an excellent screenplay, director John Huston has crafted a thrilling adventure both comic and exciting. Based on the novel by C.S. Forester.
