The novel was made into a film in 1951: The African Queen, starring Humphrey Bogart as Charlie Allnutt and Katharine Hepburn as Rose Sayer. Allnutt is changed to a Canadian in the film to explain Bogart's accent. In the film the German captain attempts to hang Rose and Charlie. They are married by the captain before the execution. The K?nigin Luise, however, crashes into the capsized African Queen and the torpedo detonates destroying the ship. Charlie and Rose escape in the confusion.
