Director: John Huston
Cast: Humphrey Bogart, Katharine Hepburn, Robert Morley, Peter Bull, Theodore Bikel, Walter Gotell

An irresistibly fluffy romantic adventure set in Africa where an uptight missionary is forced to join a boorish captain on his boat down the river in order to flee the approaching Germans during Word War I. This is a classic “opposites attract” story with both actors in fine for. Bogart won an Oscar for his performance. Based on C. S. Forester’s novel.
