Justify My Netflix: The African Queen
Today's movie: The classic 1951 Bogart/Hepburn actioner "The African Queen," newly restored and digitally released just last year, which unfortunately didn't turn out to be nearly as good as I thought it was going to be. Seriously, Bogart, no more hippo impersonations! Posted on by Jason Pettus
