Three sentence movie reviews: The African Queen

 In Three Sentence Movie Reviews

Part of the Ruby Oliver Film Festival.

This is another one of those classics that’s actually fun, not a grind to sit through.  I loved Hepburn’s embrace of the crazy that her life had become and the freedom it brought her.  It was also both amusing and gripping in places and packed much more of a punch than I expected.

Cost:  free from library
Where watched: at home.

poster from:
The tag on that poster (Actually filmed in the splendor and dangers of the Belgian Congo!) reminded me of my favorite part of the credits.  At the very end it said, “Filmed on location in Africa and Sussix England”  You know, because “Africa” is a small place, so we know exactly where you are talking about.
I also this poster for being so bodice-ripper.

    From what I remember, the poster oversells the film a bit, haha. At least, I can't recall any bodice ripping.

    My mom adores this film so I saw it at a young age. I remember how much I loved it. And Katherine Hepburn is my favorite actress of all time (so bonus there, too).
