Description

In the late 1940s, as the country was moving to the right and there was pressure on Hollywood to do the same, Katharine Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart and John Huston all protested HUAC in ways that damaged their public personas and their ability to work in Hollywood. Hepburn’s outspokenness resulted in headlines branding her a 'Red' and, allegedly, audiences stoning her films.

With their career futures uncertain, the trio collaborated on the most difficult film any of them would ever make, The African Queen.
