Synopsis: The Making of the African Queen: Or How I Went to Africa With Bogart, Bacall and Huston and Almost Lost My Mind
From School Library Journal:
YA Young adults who have seen Katharine Hepburn in the film classic will enjoy her pungent recollection. Hepburn's characteristically elliptical, abrupt style enlivens memories of John Huston, Humphrey Bogart, and ``Bet ty'' Bacall as well as the calamities and joys of making a film in the African jun gle. The photosof the Queen plus launch-with-cameras, the camp of mud floors and thatched huts, the dressing room (a mirror propped against a tree)are profuse and captioned with more of the Hepburn dry wit and in sight. Read for the author, the subject, the photos, or all three; this one is a gem. Sally Bates, Houston Pub . Lib .
