The African Queen is another classic from John Huston. I had watched a few movies with Bogart before, but this may be my favourite Bogart-performance. He simply steals the show, even though Hepburn does a very good job, Bogart is just amazing. The plot is quite simple, a riverboat captain is persuaded by a  and Hepburn embark on a journey with a missionary woman in his boat to attack an enemy warship during WWI in Africa. Its simple but it works. Interesting story and a very good ending that almost made me shed a tear. Humphrey Bogart even took home the oscar for best leading actor, which was well deserved! Overall a very good movie that I would highly recommend.

Score: 9/10
