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

I already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I have it on DVD, I was quite eager to check it out again. Well, to be honest, even though it is considered as a classic, it didn’t have much an impact on me, at least not as much as ‘The Treasure of the Sierra Madre’ which was really amazing and the best thing starring Bogart I have seen so far. I mean, sure, it was a solid a... 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.

Most Dangerous Movies Ever Made (13 movies items)

"The African Queen is a classic, one of the greatest movies in the filmography of venerable director and actor John Huston. Tired of the phony look of Hollywood's jungle sets, Huston decided to use his experience shooting The Treasure of the Sierra Madre—which he had filmed on location in Mexico—and apply it to his new adventure, which was to be filmed over seven weeks in Uganda and the Congo. Years later, star Katherine Hepburn would write a book entitled The Making of The African Queen: or,"

100 Greatest Golden Age Hollywood Films (100 movies items)

"A terrific adventure film and another classic in the astonishing canon of director John Huston, 'The African Queen' has much to recommend it. It has a witty and exciting script, two of Hollywood's greatest stars, sumptuous Technicolor cinematography and authentic African locations (a rarity in its day, especially for Technicolor films which necessitated the use of large, bulky cameras). The story of an earthy, hard-drinking riverboat captain (his boat being the African Queen of the title) and a "
