IN THE ARTS FOR 50
Katharine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart star in this 1951 movie
two very different people growing to love and respect one another after
sharing and surviving severe hardships. Bogart plays a self-indulgent
drunked ship captain who mimics Hepburn's missionary character's prim
ways. She, on the
other hand frowns up on his drinking and cowardice, disagreeing with his
lax views on human nature. But in courageously facing and solving
problems together, the two head towards a middle ground. Bogart stops
drinking when Hepburn throws his gin overgoard, while Hepburn changes her
mind about human nature.
Bogart won the Oscar for Best Actor.
