The Making of The African Queen or How I Went to Africa with Bogart, Bacall and Huston and almost lost my mind by Katherine Hepburn


This is a wonderful hardcover book with dust jacket. 1987 Knopf Publishing. Very clean inside. No writing seen and pages are crisp and clean. Binding is tight and straight. Tan cloth hardcover boards are in excellent condition. Dust jacket is very good ++. It is clean and shiny with only light shelf wear from display.

"This book will tell you what it was like for me to meet John Huston, Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall in London and in Africa for the first time. To work with them nonstop for about three months. And why - Come hell or high water through thick and thin for better and for worse but not quite until death did we part - It was great fun" Katherine Hepburn. That pretty much sums up this book which is full of wonderful original photos of the stars and the making of the movie. It is a wonderful collectible for any generation and sure to please lovers of Hollywood, Hepburn, Bogart, Bacall and the classic movies that made them famous.
