A director known as the epitome of realistic style, an actress who has been an Academy Award winner thrice and an actor who is said to have symbolized American virility. Add to that a cinematographer who made American cinema inch towards being the pedestal of dreams that it was meant to be, and what you have would, by default, be known as a masterpiece. And it was.

On director John Huston's insistence, 'The African Queen' was mostly shot on location. To find a river identical to the one in C S Forester's novel, he criss-crossed Africa until he settled on the Ruiki in the then Belgian Congo, and with a fanatical zeal, he made a film about two very different people growing to respect and love one another after sharing and surviving severe hardships.

Bogart, who won an Oscar for his role as Charlie Allnut, a slovenly riverboat captain, is more than matched by Katherine Hepburn as the spinsterish British missionary. This film is one of Huston's personal favorites.
