As a little girl my grandfather once told me that Katharine Hepburn was the ideal women, classy and smart and ever since I’ve been slowly making my way through all of her movies. The African Queen has long been on my must-watch list, thanks to Hepburn, Bogart and my hope that it would remind me of my beloved Out of Africa. If the thought of a long, languid boat ride through the jungle heats up your winter night, then tune in now. -Amy Merrick

Hepburn and Bogart make a dynamite pair as an ex-missionary and a gin-soaked steamboat captain on an adventure down the Ulanga River to head off a german gunboat. Swatting bugs and peeling leaches are small prices to pay for their edwardian rough and tumble style, plus for a sun soaked smooch with Bogart, I’d endure much worse.
