And congratulations to our winner …… . for the correct answer that Humphrey Bogart won his only Oscar for his role in the African Queen with Katharine Hepburn. He was nominated for Oscars in The Caine Mutiny and Casablanca but didn’t win. Bogart wasn’t the first choice for African Queen – the producers initially wanted John Mills and Bette Davis. It was also offered to James Mason and David Niven before finally going to Bogart. The story goes that Katharine Hepburn was so disgusted at the amount of alcohol that John Huston and Humphrey Bogart consumed during filming, that she drank only water. She suffered from a severe bout of dysentery which Bogart blamed on the fact that she didn’t drink any alcohol.
