  The African Queen (1951) at Reel Classics
THE AFRICAN QUEEN is one of those movies that has it all: adventure, humor and romance.
Based on the novel by C.S. Forrester, THE AFRICAN QUEEN is set in central Africa during World War I. It is the story of an English missionary and spinster, Rose Sayer (Hepburn), in who is forced to flee her mission after German troops destroy the village.
THE AFRICAN QUEEN was shot almost entirely on location in Uganda and on the Lualaba River in Africa; and while the exterior nature scenes appear a little cut-and-pasted at times, overall Jack Cardiff's color cinematography seems to have just the right effect.

 the african queen | movie classic, directed by john huston (1951)
In his novel White Hunter, Black Heart, Peter Viertel claims that John Huston insisted on filming The African Queen on location in the Congo rather than on the back lot of some studio simply because he wanted to go on safari and, he hoped, shoot an elephant.
Whether it is or not, to film on location was an inspired decision which, with the unconventional but equally inspired casting of Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn, made The African Queen an exceptional movie.
No effort is required because the splendour - and obvious discomfort - of the locations is clearly genuine and because these people, changing and growing, discovering within themselves and each other qualities of strength and resourcefulness that neither had suspected, are eminently credible.
