A must have in your collection. Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn at their best.

In John Huston's AFRICAN QUEEN, the boozing, smoking, cussing captain of a tramp steamer, Charlie Allnut (Humphrey Bogart), saves prim and proper Rose Sayer (Katharine Hepburn) 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 (who won an Oscar for his role) makes this a thoroughly enjoyable blend of comedy and adventure. Later came the book (and Clint Eastwood film) WHITE HUNTER, BLACK HEART, which chronicled Peter Viertel's experiences observing Huston throughout the making of the picture.

This ITV dvd version is the best available. HMV incorrectly state its black and white. This film is definately colour! This film has not even had a proper dvd release due to rights issues in the USA. This version is going for 20 dollars on import at Amazon.com. This is definately a bargain
