Adapted from a novel by C.S. Forester, The African Queen stars Humphrey Bogart in his Oscar-winning portrayal of Charlie Alnut - the slovenly, gin-swilling captain of a tramp steamer called The African Queen, which ships supplies to small East African villages during World War I. Katherine Hepburn plays Rose Sayer, the straight-laced spinster of a prim British missionary, Brother Samual (Robert Morley). When invading Germans kill the missionary and level the village, Alnut offers to take Rose back to civillisation. She can't tolerate his drinking or bad manners; he isn't crazy about her imperious, judgemental attitude. However, it does not take long before their passionate dislike turns to love. Together the disparate duo work to ensure their survival on the treacherous waters and devise an ingenious way to destroy a German gunboat. The African Queen may well be the perfect adventure film, its rollercoaster storyline complemented by the chemistry between its stars. Along with masterful direction by John Huston, the wonderful script makes this a rare treat indeed.
