** According to TheLawsAndCustomsOfWar as accepted at the time, civilians who attack soldiers were supposed to be executed, just like spies.



* NonNudeBathing: Rose and Charlie go bathing on opposite sides of the boat, for the sake of decency. Then Rose can't climb back in on her own; there are several {{Fanservice}}-y shots of her stretching her legs out to try, with no visible clothing. Finally she asks for Charlie's help, but insists that he avert his eyes... and when he pulls her up onto the boat, it turns out she was wearing a short shift the entire time, and just has the nudity taboos appropriate to the post-Victorian missionary that she is.
* MacGyvering: Allnut manages to repair his damaged boat using a makeshift bellows and anvil, and uses some cannisters, blasting powder and bullets to create some makeshift ramming explosives.

The TroubledProduction film made such an impression on Hepburn she later wrote a book about it, entitled ''The Making of'' The African Queen: ''or How I Went To Africa With Bogie, Bacall and Huston and Almost Lost My Mind''. Screenwriter Peter Viertel also wrote a novel about the shoot that was later adapted by Creator/ClintEastwood as ''White Hunter Black Heart'' starring Eastwood as John Wilson (a Huston {{Expy}}). This film is notable for how damn long it took to come out on DVD despite widespread interest: it came only out in 2010, at least in the US. (An earlier British DVD was taken from a faded print. Later DVD and Blu-Ray releases are fully remastered.)

Hepburn plays Rose Sayer, a missionary's sister living in British Colonial Africa at the start of UsefulNotes/WorldWarI. Bogart is Charlie Allnut, the hard-drinking man with a riverboat who, among other things, brings the mail from town every few weeks. When Rose's brother dies, he offers to take her to the nearest town to catch a ship to Britain. Being gutsy as she is, Rose instead creates a daring plan to build a makeshift torpedo, sail ''down'' the river (which no one has ever done) and take out the ''Königin Luise'', a ship patrolling the German-controlled lake that is the only thing standing in the way of the British army. This being a film with a man and a woman as its primary stars in the [[TheFifties 1950s]], naturally, [[UptightLovesWild they fall in love]].

* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory: It was based on the real-life sinking of a German gunboat in WorldWarI that required hauling a boat through the wilderness. No, it was not done by a beautiful movie star and a plucky mechanic. It was done by the Royal Navy.
