    While filming this movie in the Congo, everybody on the crew, including Katherine Hepburn, became extremely illl with dysentery from drinking the water. Everybody that is, except Humphrey Bogart, who only drank Whiskey. 8 years 1 month ago

    The film is largely notable for the chemistry between Hepburn and Bogart and the fact that it is essentially a play set on a boat moving down river. Much of what appears in the film is incredibly average by today's standards, especially the woefully aged green-screen effects.

    Nonetheless, Bogart's performance and the novelty of the setting do make it watchable. It has some great lines and moments, but overall feels cliched today. When it comes down to it, they don't really make films like this anymore and that's a shame because this is a solid film.
