The African Queen

Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn have amazing chemistry in this timeless film.  The two find themselves alone together on Bogart's riverboat in Africa.  Initially disgusted by one another, the two learn to live together in harmony.  It is a great adventure and and very humorous movie.

Kiss Me Kate

I will admit that my opinion is biased, but I simply adore Kiss Me Kate.  I believe this is greatly the result of my taking part in my college's production of this complicated musical.  I was in the chorus, but it is truly the main characters who shine in this film adaptation.  Filled with racy Cole Porter numbers and quite a bit of dancing, it is a very high energy and very passionate musical.  "I Hate Men" is one of my favorite show tunes of all time.
