“The African Queen” is directed by John Huston, novel written by C.S. Forester, adapted for film by James Agee and John Huston. Peter Viertel and John Collier are uncredited.

Released in 1951, Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn are at their absolute best playing a gin-swilling Canadian and English missionary who travel on a steam boat with plans to attack a German warship.

A joy and a pleasure to see this film on the large screen, even if you don’t have the ability to see it in a theatre, see it! It is a classic and the actors embody and show true chemistry.

Yes, I am loving the classic movie festival…up next month: Singin’ In The Rain!
