  1. The African Queen, the original boat used in the movie, is docked behind a restaurant/resort in Key Largo, I have visited there many times, wow, the nostalgia. You have done a eloquent job taking us back to that adventure a hats off to the work of Huston.


  2. Sunday afternoon TV back when a kid was the first time I saw this film and it stayed with me ever since. This one plus Casablanca (a particular favourite) stand out for me. You done it proud.

  3. Always a treat to read your poetry, Paul…and I couldn’t agree with you more! They ABSOLUTELY SURE AS HELL can’t or won’t make movies like that anymore. It’s all about the precious bottom line. Artistic values be damned!
