Take John Huston's magnificent directorial prowess, stunning location cinematography in Africa, two top drawer performances by Kate & Humphrey (his only Academy Award-winning turn), PLUS a still riveting tale of a treacherous trip of the title character down a rapid and Nazi-engulfed river and what do you get? Only one of the most enduring, exciting, incredible action/romances EVER to come out of Hollywood! If you have yet to see this one-of-a-kind classic - do so - IMMEDIATELY!!
