I hope this works for you all.

One of the greatest stories ever told and a fine bit of cinema to boot.

Reminds me a bit of the 1960s film 'Zulu'.

If I hadn’t already known it was Sean Connery and Maurice Mickelwhite, AKA as Michael Caine, I would have thought it was about Obama.

I think Caine was in every English film made in the sixties and early seventies. Anyway it seems like it. I remember a number of pantywaist movie critics (Siskel and Ebert?) panning the film when it came out and praising some awful Euro tripe flick instead. It is an excellent film.

Well Kipling is about as Politically Incorrect as you can get

“Yes, makin’ mock o’ uniforms that guard you while you sleep
Is cheaper than them uniforms, an’ they’re starvation cheap;
An’ hustlin’ drunken soldiers when they’re goin’ large a bit
Is five times better business than paradin’ in full kit.
Then it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, ‘ow’s yer soul?”
But it’s “Thin red line of ‘eroes” when the drums begin to roll,
The drums begin to roll, my boys, the drums begin to roll,
O it’s “Thin red line of ‘eroes” when the drums begin to roll.”

From Tommy
Rupyard Kipling

The man who would be king already thinks he IS the king. He is away on “holiday” in Hawaii right now.

Re: Zulu

Did Robert Ruarke write that?

No, apparently the only connection is that both films involved the British military in the late 1800s. The movie poster just reminded me of the 1964 film "Zulu".

In any case, I didn't know until now that the 1979 film, "Zulu Dawn", wasn't actually a remake of the 64 film, but rather a film focusing on the events which preceded those in the earlier movie. ie, The Battle of Isandlwana. I have both downloaded to my PC, but never really watched "Dawn" carefully. Knowing what I know now, I must watch it again.

"A prequel [to Zulu, 1964], Zulu Dawn, about the Battle of Isandlwana which immediately preceded the events of this film [Zulu, 64], was released in 1979. It was also written by Cy Endfield, and starred Burt Lancaster and Peter O'Toole."Zulu--Wikipedia
