Zulu (1964)

Cy Endfield directs Michael Caine, Stanley Baker and Ulla Jacobsson in this war movie recreating the attack on Rourke’s Drift between the Zulus and the British Army.

John Barry’s wide reaching and hard thumping score, a patient threat. Stanley Baker and Michael Caine squaring off marvellously in a quiet class war. The lush on-location cinematography from Stephen Dade. Gold old British military heroic tragedy. The singing. Top notch afternoon killer filler.
