Default "The African Queen" might be coming from Paramount for Blu-ray

from digitalbits.com:

The studio confirmed that it does have the U.S. rights to The African Queen and that it is now actively working on restoring the title for DVD and possibly Blu-ray release. For a long period there were complications in getting the process underway due to the need to acquire the appropriate elements which Paramount did not have in North America but which did reside in the U.K. where the original production company, Romulus Films, is located (hence the availability of the film as a Region 2 release for some considerable time now). Paramount was not willing to commit to a specific release date as yet, but late 2009 or 2010 seems like a reasonable timeframe.
