Zulu - With Some Guts Behind It - The Making of the Epic Movie: EXPANDED AND REVISED 50TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION by Sheldon Hall

THE EPIC BOOK ABOUT THE EPIC MOVIE – NOW IT’S BACK!

One of the best-loved and most enduringly popular British films ever made, Zulu tells the epic story of the Battle of Rorke’s Drift of 1879, in which barely 150 soldiers of the British Army in South Africa fought for twelve hours to defend an isolated mission station against an attack by 4,000 highly disciplined Zulu warriors. Here is the full story of its making, based on years of original research and dozens of interviews with cast and crew members and their families.

In this fully revised and expanded Second Edition of Sheldon Hall’s highly acclaimed, sell-out book you will find additional material including a first-hand account of the film’s shooting and post-production by the personal assistant to the producers; never-before-seen insider information on the financing of the production; a critical account of the film itself; and over a hundred new illustrations, some never before published, including a new colour section.

Carried over from the First Edition are the full original main text, including extracts from the screenplay and script notes; letters and production documents; biographies of all the principal actors and filmmakers; screenwriter John Prebble’s original magazine article on Rorke’s Drift; and hundreds of rare and unusual images.
