The African Queen
Director: John Huston
UK, USA, 1951
Run Time: 103 minutes, Certificate: ,
Huston got the best from the inspired casting of Oscar-winner Bogart as an old salt and Hepburn as a prissy spinster, forced to travel together on a rusting hulk down an African river during World War 1, combatting the elements, the occupying German forces and their mutual distrust. A genuine 'classic'.
