The Mother of All Action Heroines: Rose Sayer

Although The African Queen (1951) is a far cry from what we think of as action adventure these days, at its center is a female action hero we could all take a few lessons from.

The creator of this short video, Jennine Lanouette, is in the process of creating a series of e-books to examine other movies in this way.

I hadn't thought of The African Queen that way but Jennine Lanouette makes a strong case for making Katherine Hepburn the first action woman heroine, note perfect.
