Trivia: Zulu
  • Executive Meddling: On a governmental level. The film company was forbidden to actually pay the Zulu's acting as extras, under apartheid laws. Director Cy Enfield, who'd struck up a friendship with the Zulus acting in the film, was upset with this and decided to leave them the cattle used in the film, more valuable to them than money.
  • Playing Against Type: Inverted. Michael Caine, who would go on to play working class Cockney characters throughout his career, plays a snobby aristocratic officer with a posh accent in this movie — his first.
