Humphrey Bogart’s boat ‘African Queen’ saved from scrapheap
I stumbled across this story on CNN and was so happy to see this amazing boat was saved. It’s a shame how irreplaceable pieces of history like this get lost over time.
It’s a crime that there’s not a Hollywood History museum here in Los Angeles with items like this in it. I know Debbie Reynolds tried to open one with her amazing collection of props and costumes but she couldn’t get it accomplished for some reason I do not know. What a great tourist attraction this would be. Something our economy desperately needs too!
