Book Vs Movie

The African Queen

The C.S. Forester Novel  Vs the John Houston Classic Film

 

We are feeling the heat and humidity of summer in the city so the Margos decided to have some fun and travel to Africa for early 20th Century adventure with The African Queen by C.S. Forester. The book was published in 1935 and Forester was an expert on nautical tales with his Horatio Hornblower novels. 

The African Queen is the story of missionary Rose “Rosie” Sayer, who has lived and worked in Africa for several years with her brother Samuel who dies suddenly after Germans take over their village. Rose pairs with British explorer Charles “Charlie” Allnutt on his janky ship “The African Queen” down the Ulanga River. She schemes to have explosives on the boat turn into torpedoes to attack the Germans on their boat, “Konigin Luise.” 

Rose and Charlie fall in love as they find their way into the enemies and then the British consul. What becomes of them? Forester wants us to come to our own conclusions. 

The 1952 movie is a classic directed by John Houston and starring Humphrey Bogart & Katharine Hepburn. It’s divine and amazing. Seriously, this may be the best movie we have talked about so far. :)

Between the novel and film--which did the Margos like better? 

In this ep the Margos discuss:

  • The life of C.S. Forester
  • The plot of the book and movie
  • The cast including Humphrey Bogart (Allnutt,) Katharine Hepburn (Rose,) Robert Morley (Rev. Sam Sayer) and Peter Bull (Captain of Louisa)
