At The Drive-In

5 - The African Queen (1951)

av At The Drive-In | Publicerades 3/21/2020

Today I talk about the iconic "The African Queen," the movie which won Humphrey Bogart his only Oscar (and with good reason!). With the help of Katherine Hepburn, this movie becomes thrilling, funny, and an all-around unforgettable adventure, and features some of the best acting of the 20th century. Can you tell I like the movie? Enjoy!

Om Podcasten

A podcast where I talk about movies from the 30s to the 60s. I will be looking at the plot, themes, characters, funny anecdotes, and anything worth mentioning. The structure of the podcast will alternate between very famous movies from the time (eg Hitchcock) and lesser known movies that are definitely worth talking about. I will also be dedicating some episodes to specific actors and directors and looking at their contribution to cinema.
