A timeless classic, restored too.
The award winning tale of romance and adventure, adapted from a novel by C.S. Forester and featuring screen legends Katharine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart is widely seen as a cinematic classic. Bogart’s role as the hard-drinking river trader won him an Oscar, with Hepburn putting in a wonderfully astute performance as the prim missionary who must accompany Bogart in his boat, the ‘African Queen’ during World War I. The two are forced to travel down a hazardous river together, learning about each other along the way. Both John Huston’s masterful direction and the onscreen chemistry between Hepburn and Bogart, makes this a rare treat indeed.
