The award winning tale of romance and adventure, adapted from a novel by C.S. Forester and featuring screen legends Katharine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart is widely seen as a cinematic classic. Bogart's role as the hard-drinking river trader won him an Oscar, with Hepburn putting in a wonderfully astute performance as the prim missionary who must accompany Bogart in his boat, the 'African Queen' during World War I. The two are forced to travel down a hazardous river together, learning about each other along the way. Both John Huston's masterful direction and the onscreen chemistry between Hepburn and Bogart, makes this a rare treat indeed.

The film's restoration in 2010:

ITV STUDIOS Global Entertainment has partnered with Paramount Pictures to save this great classic and restore it back to its former glory. The Original 35mm three strip camera negatives were scanned at high resolution and digitally recombined using restoration tools to repair tears and scratches, remove dirt and stabilize the picture. The sound track underwent full digital audio restoration removing clicks, hum, and other audio defects before creating a new Optical soundtrack negative. The Digital files have been output to a high resolution digital cinema File as well as creating a pristine new combined 35mm negative and an HD master.

This is a fine example of how today's technologies can protect and preserve film both digitally and photo-chemically for the next 100 years and beyond. The film is expected to be re-released in UK Cinemas in 2010 both on 35mm prints and digital projection and is available on DVD and Blu-ray to enjoy at home. Add it to your collection today!
