It is a movie worth watching for and you’ll be amazed by its riveting actions that make this film brilliant at its means, and this film of The African Queen
will amuse you at your home viewing pleasure to bits. In this 1951
British adventure film which is a pure adaptation from the 1935 novel of
the same name by C. S. Forester. The film was directed by John
Huston and produced by Sam Spiegel and John Woolf. In this adaptation
of the C.S. Forester novel, Humphrey Bogart (who would win the
best-actor Oscar®) and Katharine Hepburn costar as an unlikely pair
thrown together in German East Africa during the First World War. He's
the gin-soaked skipper of what we might call the title character, a
none-too-reliable steam launch chugging along the backwaters of the
"Dark Continent." Hepburn's a straitlaced Methodist missionary who,
following the demise of her bachelor brother (Robert Morley) and the
burning of their village by Kaiser Wilhelm's troops, determines that the
Queen should be used to attack the Königin Luise, a large German
gunboat patrolling a lake downriver.
Then again, John Huston and the absurd were always on familiar terms. In discussing their situation, Charlie mentions to Rose that the Germans have a gunboat, the Louisa (actually Königin Luise in German), which patrols a large lake downriver, effectively blocking any British counter-attacks. Rose comes up with a plan to convert the Queen into a torpedo boat, and sink the Louisa. Charlie points out that navigating the river would be suicidal: to reach the lake they would have to pass a German fort and negotiate several dangerous rapids. But Rose is insistent and eventually persuades him to go along with the plan. Even it has the milestones in existence it is still hugely relevant at it its means that is giving you the absolute amusement factor right at the comfort of your home sitting with your loved one.
