"The African Queen" comes to meticulously restored glory this year in a commemorative DVD edition. Based on the 1935 novel by C.S. Forester, the combination of Katharine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart as a missionary and a hard-drinking boat captain, respectively, locked in a story of adventure and romance was movie history magic. Extras include documentary "Embracing Chaos: Making The African Queen," plus a recording of the Lux Radio Theater broadcast of "The African Queen," and a reproduction of Hepburn's out-of-print memoir, "The Making of The African Queen: Or How I went to Africa with Bogart, Bacall and Huston and almost lost my mind."
