Life Magazine has long been famous for the quality of the pictures its photographers brought back from around the world. One such photographer accompanied Humphey Bogart, Katherine Hepburn and director John Huston when they traveled to the Belgian Congo and the Ruki River to shoot the now classic The African Queen. Although some of the photos he shot were published, a number of stunning images remained in the magazine’s archives until late last week when they released 29 of them on their website on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the film’s release. Below is just a small sample of this amazing look at what has been considered one of the most grueling location shoots in cinema history. Follow the link over for more.
