-->'''Bromhead:''' "Now listen, old boy; you're not badly hurt. We need you! Damn you, we ''need'' you, understand?!"


* A meta example. Because of the apartheid laws in South Africa at the time of filming, director Cy Endfield was forbidden from paying the Zulu extras at an equal rate to the other actors. He got around this by giving them all the animals used in the production, which were a lot more valuable to them than the money would have been.

* It's probably out of place but the ending, when the Zulu sing praise for the defenders and leave was a pretty heartwarming moment. As the translator of the group said they were "Saluting fellow braves." And after they've all left, one lingered a moment longer to give the defenders one last salute. Historically, this never happened and the Zulu only left when the British received reinforcements.

* Thanks to the laws of at-the-time Apartheid South Africa, the production team were outraged that they wouldn't be allowed to pay the Zulu extras. To get around this, at the end of the shoot the director Cy Endfield gave all the animals purchased for the film to them, including the large herd of cows, which were arguably much more valuable and appreciated.
