Some really exciting news - I have bought the Making of Zulu film from Dr Pinto - footage and copyright now belong to me. I am in the process of cleaning the 16mm print before transferring it to a screenable format. I will then be embarking on organising screenings around the country for interested groups, and with the 50th coming up, it's the perfect time.
The 26 minute film shows amazing scenes of the cast and crew, including arriving and disembarking at Johannesburg airport, driving off to location in convoy, the sets being built in the Royal Natal National Park, the costume department hand-making the Zulu costumes and the British military outfits being fitted for cast. The film's producer Joseph Levine and the director Cy Endfield are shown behind the cameras talking and discussing with cast and crew including Stanley Baker, Michael Caine, Jack Hawkins and Ulla Jacobsson. The cameras roll and shoot what are now classic scenes from "Zulu" including Michael Caine's arrival on horseback, Stanley Baker organising the troops, the burning of the hospital at Rorke's Drift and the big Zulu attack.
To register your interest in any forthcoming screenings, please go to www.zulufilmstore.com and email your details. I do not share your details with anyone else.
