Beat the Devil

John Huston, 1954.

This movie stars Bogart, Jennifer Jones, and Gina Lollobrigida in a comedic film about some shady characters on the way to central Africa to exploit some uranium resources. It is lightweight and amusing, with Bogart and Lollobrigida restrained and the rest of the cast often hamming it up. This combination makes for a good balance.
