Product Description
"The African Queen" is a film classic from 1951. The setting is East Africa at the beginning of World War I. German troops burn down a mission and the missionary's sister, Rosie, buries her brother and enlists an old dilapidated river steamboat, 'The African Queen' to get out of East Africa. 'The African Queen's' owner is Charlie Allnut, a heavy drinking, grumpy, grizzly but very capable boat pilot. Rosie and Charlie are polar opposites in all areas, including where the steamboat is going. Rosie is determined to do their part for the British war effort (and revenge her brother's death) and take out a huge German warship, the Louisa. It really is a near impossible task but Rosie manages to badger and cajole Charlie, convincing him they can make it over the rapids, evade a German fort, bloodthirsty parasites, endless swamps and torpedo the warship. Rosie is not a woman to take no for an answer and Charlie is not one to cater to a woman; yet the two finally mesh and the outcome is both exhilarating and exhausting. The film stars the great Katherine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart.
