“One of the most intellectual and unknown films from actor and director Clint Eastwood , at the height of his best work as acting as filmmaking , and based on real events . A thinly fictionalized account of a legendary movie director, the world famous film director John Huston , whose desire to hunt down an animal turns into a grim situation , he has gone to Africa to make his next movie , but he is more interested in hunting large tusked elephants that shooting the movie he came to Africa to produce . Eastwood stars , directs and produces this original adventure film that alternates with great skill and unique perspective, a recreation of the early stages in the filming u0026quot;The African Queenu0026quot; and the obsession of its director to hunt elephant tusks in the middle portentous African Savannah . u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eVery good performance by Eastwood who gives a self-destructive portrait of the protagonist John Wilson , a facade for John Hustonu0026#39;s The African Queen. High performances filled with silences , glances, gestures , supported by an excellent support cast as Jeff Faheyu0026#39;s character is based on Peter Viertel, George Dzundzau0026#39;s on Sam Spiegel ; Marisa Berensonu0026#39;s on Katharine Hepburn and Richard Vanstoneu0026#39;s on Humphrey Bogart . Even Katharine Hepburn contested the accuracy of the film . Interesting script with writing credits from prestigious screenwriters as Peter Viertel (novelu0026#39;s author and married to Deborah Kerr), Burt Kennedy and James Bridges , his writing on the screenplay became the final film work . u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis interesting film results to be an extraordinary building a peculiar character inspired in John Huston as an obstinate, contrary director whou0026#39;d rather hunt elephants than takes care of his crew or movie . Nobody is better than a great actor-turned-best director, Clint Eastwood , to impersonate one of the greatest American filmmakers with portentous personality and special character . The particularities regarding his crafty , eccentric womanizer and u0026quot;bon vivantu0026quot; found in Houston turned to be perfectly incarnated into the wonderful interpretation of Eastwood who provides everything needed to display the charisma and genius of this character . Based on 1953u0026#39;s accounts written by Peter Viertel and well played by Jeff Fahey referring his experiences working on James Ageeu0026#39;s screenplay . The small steamboat that they used in the whitewater scene is the same boat that Humphrey Bogartu0026#39;s character captained in The African Queen . Furthermore , the picture displays an atmospheric and sensible musical score by Lennie Niehaus , Eastwoodu0026#39;s usual . Colorful cinematography by Jack N. Green filmed on location in Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe , Zambia and in studio : Pinewood Studios, Iver Heath, Buckinghamshire, England, UK . Rating : Good , better than average .”
