The African Queen (USA/United Kingdom, 1951, 105 min.)

John Huston in Africa

Presented in conjunction with the upcoming exhibition, “Earth Matters: Land as Material and Metaphor in the Arts of Africa” and the National Museum of African Art. 

Welcome by Jeffrey Stine, Chair, Division of Medicine and Science, National Museum of American History. Introduced by Tony Huston, the director’s son.  

Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn go on location with Oscar-winning director John Huston in the African countries of Kenya, Uganda and the Republic of Congo, and in London to film a timeless jungle adventure based on C.S. Forester’s novel of the same name set in World War I Africa. Bogie gives an Oscar-winning performance as a grizzled skipper, who along with a missionary spinster (Hepburn), take a perilous journey down a tortuous river aboard a rickety old riverboat on a mission to sink an Imperial German gunboat. Bogie and Hepburn make an ideal pair; two misfits bonding together in a common goal. Directed by John Huston. Produced by Horizon Pictures. 

Discussion with Tony Huston.  

Shown with THE ROOTS OF HEAVEN and WHITE HUNTER BLACK HEART
