“Nature, Mr. Allnut, is what we are put in this world to rise above!”
Charlie Allnut is the slovenly, gin-swilling captain of a tramp steamer called the African Queen, which ships supplies to small East African villages during World War I. Rose Sayer is the spinster sister of a prim British missionary, Rev. Samuel Sayer. When the Germans invade and Sayer dies, Allnut offers to take Rose back to civilization. Their journey soon becomes a dangerous quest as they battle the jungle, a German battleship, and most of all each other.
