John Huston's The African Queen is the heart-rendering tale of two companions with wildly differing, 'opposites attract' personalities who find themselves catapulted into a love affair as they travel downriver in East Africa at the beginning of World War I. Romantic, exciting and often hilarious in parts, this is the pinnacle of Hollywood's Golden Age of escapism.
