    Like many others I've lost count of the number of times I've watched it, and never get tired of it. I'd also loved to have heard the 1936 radio interview with the real Colour Sergeant Bourne. Would have been amazing to hear the voice of someone who was actually there.

    The bluray of this movie really is a joy to behold. All the beads of sweat are there as if we were standing next to the characters on the dark continent
    Thanks for the heads up. I've nboticed that a number of Blu Rays or HD presentations of older films make them look awesome and better than more recent films (probably cos all shot on location rather than with CGI). The Blu Ray I have of Shout at the Devil is awesome too - the opening crowd scenes in Africa look amazing.

    David Kernan said, when he was on the set of Zulu, Baker asked him who he was.

    On replying 'I'm the performer from That was the Week that Was.'

    Baker said, 'I didn't want you I wanted the fat one!' Meaning Roy Kinnear.


    Thought the photo's might be of interest. Bromhead, Hook and Chard.

    I wonder why, when mentioning the film Zulu, the news presenters always say it starred Michael Caine when Stanley Baker was top starred, with Caine as one of the co-stars. Even on the DVD cover, Caine is featured over half the cover, with Stanley Baker somewhere in the background.

    According to the 1964 poster of Zulu, Michael Caine was 5th down the cast list and in smaller letters behind James Booth
    (notta lotta people know dat), yet these days, they make out he was the main star.

    Just that over time Caine is now better known. There was something similar with the poster for the 1948 re-issue of Things to Come, which elevated John Clements to an effective co-starring credit he certainly didn't merit in 1936!

    I wonder if the interview still exists in the BBC archives. It would be terrible if it had been junked like a lot of early stuff at the BBC has.

    By the time of the 1972 re-release at the Casino Cinerama (advert available idc if requested), the cast order was still the same, but Caine's name in print size had been enlargened to match the remainder of the cast.
