I heard 'em first.
I'll get you a medal for modesty, Private Williams, would you like that?
Pte. Williams: You never would, Colour Sergeant, a medal? :lol!:

i think i read somewhere that there was an alternative scene which was not used where Bob Hoskins kills (shoots?) pte Williiams so that he willl not be killed by the Zulu - anyone else heard this or even seen it ?

I have not heard that. But I'm glad they didn’t use it. I think they way they died together was quite apt.

PostSubject: zulu dawn   Fri Sep 11, 2009 10:03 am

hi gary.
Congrats on regaining the ashes, i havent heard of SGT WILLIAMS shooting PVT WILLIAMS , but i do have the final
shooting script of zulu dawn , which is a little different to the movie. so here it is.

SGT WILLIAMS and PVT WILLIAMS back -to- back see the danger to the guns, both have their bayonets fixed.
CLR-SGT WILLIAMS " save the guns ..... SAVE THE GUNS "

The 2 williams"s and several redcoats rush to the stalled guns. ZULUS converge, whilst the men work desperately to
free the wheels.
PVT WILLIAMS , to his own surprise , shoots a zulu , CLR SGT WILLIAMS bayonets another . Two zulus simultaneously
asseagai the SGT , who falls mortally wounded, they run forward to get at the guns. PVT .WILLIAMS leans over the SGT,
tries to pick him up. PVT WILLIAMS says " come on sarn"t . I'll help you ". even in death the SGT recognises the danger.
The SGT says weakly " no .....no.......please dont. But the PVT wont be deterred. He gets the SGT to his feet. PVT WILLIAMS
then says " dont worry , sarn"t, i"ll take care of everything. Then a single assegai penetrates them both ....and they die together.

cheers 90th.

hi gary.
Poor ricky is the first captain in 100 yrs to loose the ashes TWICE , last person to do that was poor Billy Murdoch.
I dont think we shot him :lol!: . But he may have been given the BULLET , so to speak . :lol!:
Sorry pete , just a tad off topic !!.
cheers 90th :)

Did you Know !!!!

Bob Hoskins got infected by a worm while filming Zulu Dawn.

John Hurt was cast in Zulu Dawn but had to be replaced after an incident with airport staff over his passport.
