Restored edition of John Huston's romantic river epic starring Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn in their only on screen pairing. Rose (Hepburn) is a prim missionary who is forced to team up with gin-swilling river trader Charlie (Bogart) when her village is destroyed during the Great War. As they flee from the Germans down the Congo, aboard the trader's battered ship, The African Queen, their mutual dislike turns gradually to love. Shot in rich Technicolor by celebrated cinematographer Jack Cardiff, the film has gained classic status over the years. Bogart won an Oscar for his portrayal of the gruff, cynical sailor.
