In WWI Africa, a gin-swilling riverboat captain is persuaded by a strait-laced missionary to use his boat to attack an enemy warship.
There is a theory that the colonies of feral rose-ringed parakeets which are now endemic to London and the South-East of England originated with escapees from the film's Ealing Studios set in Isleworth, Middlesex.
The Brother, Rose Sayer, African Parishioners of the First Methodist Church of Kungdu:
Bread of Heaven, Bread of Heaven
When Rosie tries to climb aboard the boat, you can tell from her shoulder blade and leg that she is naked. When Charlie helps her into the boat, she is wearing women's underwear.
