We — the whole family — watched the fine old (1964) Stanley Baker /
Michael Caine movie ZULU. I had been promising it to my son for weeks,
since the Rorke’s Drift anniversary. I had told him the story, and read him
excerpts from VDH’s book.
In order to show the kids the movie, I had to buy the DVD from Amazon. None
of my local video-rental stores stocked it. I am mildly curious about this.
Is it political correctness? (At the climax of the movie, a single
company-size unit of British soldiers mows down a Zulu impi by sheer
superiority of firing discipline.) Or is this just a movie no-one wants to
rent? Any reports from readers in other parts of the country will be read
