If you love old movies like I do, then you've probably seen The African Queen with Bogart and Katharine Hepburn. Wallace Wood did this exceptional parody of the movie in EC Comics' own Mad imitation, Panic.
The experience of filming the movie was so memorable to Hepburn that in 1987 she wrote a memoir:
Clint Eastwood played a Huston-like director making an African Queen-like movie in White Hunter Black Heart in 1990.
The Wood version is from the Al Feldstein edited Panic #2, 1954:
This first week of 2011 is a theme week. Well, sorta. It's an EC week with obscure stories you may not have seen. Tomorrow, meet Freddy Firefly, from EC's Animal Fables.
