Was in the mood to watch some old movies about the Brits fighting Zulus and found the two main movies about that, Zulu and Zulu Dawn. Watch Zulu Dawn first as it portrays the buildup to the conflict between the British South African colony in Natal and the Kingdom of Zululand progressing to the disaster in the Battle of Isandlwana. The 1964 movie, Zulu, covers the Defence of Rorke's Drift which historically happened later in the day after Isandlwana. Lots of stars in both movies, but one of the real stars is the Martini-Henry .577/450 breech-loading rifle.

Zulu Dawn 1979 https://youtu.be/9sr409Qd6GU
A 1979 war film about the historical Battle of Isandlwana between British and Zulu forces in 1879 in South Africa. The screenplay was by Cy Endfield, from his book, and Anthony Story. The film was directed by Douglas Hickox. The score was composed by Elmer Bernstein.

Zulu Dawn is a prequel to Zulu, released in 1964, which depicts the historical Battle of Rorke's Drift later the same day, and was co-written and directed by Cy Endfield.

Zulu is a 1964 epic war film depicting the Battle of Rorke's Drift between the British Army and the Zulus in January 1879, during the Anglo-Zulu War. It depicts 150 British soldiers, many of whom were sick and wounded patients in a field hospital, who successfully held off a force of 4,000 Zulu warriors.

The film was directed by American screenwriter Cy Endfield and produced by Stanley Baker and Endfield, with Joseph E. Levine as executive producer. The screenplay is by John Prebble and Endfield, based on an article by Prebble, a historical writer. The film stars Stanley Baker and introduces Michael Caine, in his first major role, with a supporting cast that includes Jack Hawkins, Ulla Jacobsson, James Booth, Nigel Green, Paul Daneman, Glynn Edwards, Ivor Emmanuel and Patrick Magee. Future South African political leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi played Zulu King Cetshwayo kaMpande, his great grandfather. The opening and closing narration is spoken by Richard Burton. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zulu_(1964_film)
