Humphrey Bogart Double Feature! In THE AFRICAN QUEEN, he plays a gin-soaked captain who helps psalm-singing spinster Katharine Hepburn launch a suicidal assault on a German warship during WWI. In BEAT THE DEVIL, he meets compulsive liar Jennifer Jones while traveling to Africa, where a group of criminals hope to acquire a uranium mine.

THE AFRICAN QUEEN
1951, Paramount, 105 min, Dir: John Huston
Gin-soaked captain Humphrey Bogart decides to take pity on skinny, psalm-singing spinster Katharine Hepburn after her brother is killed in a German attack during WWI — and instead, winds up falling in love, and ferrying her downriver to launch a suicidal assault on a German warship!

BEAT THE DEVIL
1953, Sony Repertory, 89 min, UK/Italy/USA, Dir: John Huston
If screwball comedies were about criminal entanglements instead of romantic ones — and if they featured dialogue by Truman Capote — they would resemble this delightful adventure spoof. Jennifer Jones plays a compulsive liar traveling to Africa with her husband when she meets Humphrey Bogart, who’s been enlisted by a group of criminals (including Robert Morley and Peter Lorre) eager to acquire a uranium mine. Bogart lost a bundle of money and several teeth making the film, but it remains among the most distinctive and entertaining of his career. Costarring Gina Lollobrigida.
Screening format: DCP
