    An Original 11 X 14 Lobby Card #7 from the 1951 action/adventure film “The African Queen” starring Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn. The film tells the story of steamboat captain Charlie Allnut (Bogart) who delivers supplies to East Africa during World War I.  Allnut runs into a beautiful young English missionary named Rose Sayer (Hepburn) whose father recently died and now wants to return home.  Allnut offers Sayer a ride back to civilization on his boat “The African Queen.”  Initially the two can’t stand each other, but after a while they develop a relationship in order to ensure their survival.  Humphrey Bogart won an Academy Award for Best Actor in his portrayal of Charlie Allnut.  “The African Queen” is widely considered one of the greatest films ever made.  Offered here is one of the best cards in the set showing the duo fixing “The African Queen” after getting stuck in the river.  Charlie eventually comes out of the water covered in leeches, but manages to survive and ends up marrying Rose at the films end. The colors are bright and this is a nice example.  Distributor’s pencil on the verso.  Fine.
