Classic in every sense of the word.

"Well I ain't sorry for you no more, ya crazy, psalm-singing, skinny old maid!"

By this time in his career, John Huston was already established as a capable filmmaker who had previously helmed such classics as The Maltese Falcon and The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. And of course, Huston could only call one man to fill the title role: Humphrey Bogart. The African Queen is deservedly... read more

A classic

Recently, I have seen ‘The Treasure of the Sierra Madre’ which is arguably the best movie Humphrey Bogart and John Huston have made together. Eventually, they would make 5 movies (I don’t count ‘In This Our Life' because Bogart only had a cameo) and this flick was the last one they made together. Even though it is also considered as a classic, it didn’t have much an impact on me, at leas... read more

Underrated classic...

The African Queen is another classic romantic film. African Queen is a beautiful romantic film whereas some other romantic classics suh as Casablanca are quite dark ones. African Queen is a really adventurous romantic experience that joins together with modern day romance and with beautiful sceneries it's untrue. It is a film that isn't just about love but bravery and courage as well. I wouldn't c... read more

The boozing, smoking, cussing captain of a tramp steamer, Charlie Allnut, saves prim and proper Rose Sayer after her brother is killed by German soldiers at the beginning of World War I in Africa. Many quarrels later, the two set sail on the Ulonga-Bora in order to sabotage a German ship. Based on the 1935 novel by C.S. Forester, the wonderful combination of Hepburn and Bogie makes this a thoroughly enjoyable blend of comedy and adventure.

" Katharine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart "...Samuel Sayer (Robert Morley) and his sister Rose (Katharine Hepburn) are British Methodist missionaries in the village of Kungdu in German East Africa at the beginning of World War I in August/September 1914.

My movie year 2016 (666 movies items)

"8.3. (DVD/Kirjasto) Melkein jo lopussa kelasin, että tämähän saa paremmat pisteet. Ikävä kyllä munaa tuoreen avioparin teloittamiseen ei löydy, vaan makaaberi ratkaisu huuhdotaan pois vetisen ihmepelastumisen ja onnellisen päätöksen tieltä. Jäljelle jää viihdyttävähkö seikkailuelokuva, jonka mielenkiintoisin puoli on Bogartin äijäimagon alta hiekkapaperilla esiin hiottu inhimillisyys heikkouksineen kaikkineen. Katherine Hepburnin voimakas naishahmo siivoaa patriarkaalisuuden"

20 Classic Films Not Nominated For Best Picture (20 movies items)

"Eight years after his first nomination for playing the suave and stoic Rick in "Casablanca," Humphrey Bogart finally got his Oscar for playing Charlie Allnut, the neither suave nor stoic skipper of a junker riverboat in German East Africa just after the outbreak of World War I. Thrown into the company of prim missionary Rose (Katharine Hepburn), the resulting story of late-life love and derring-do amongst the wrinkly set would be almost self-parodic if it wasn't so completely effective and so wh"
