Zulu Poster

TWO "Zulu" exhibition posters (both 27 1/2"x 39 1/2") promoting the exhibition about the 1964 film which took place at Cardiff Castle in 2011. One poster shows a recently discovered storyboard sequence of the attack on the Rorke's Drift hospital.

 

The Welsh connection with Zulu is very apparent in the film. The Ango-Zulu War 1879 chiefly involved the 24th Regiment of Foot who were based at Brecon & approx. 30% of the Regiment were Welsh. Immediately preceding the heroic Rorke's Drift defence, 1,300 British soldiers were slaughtered by the Zulus at Islandlwana. Thereafter 100 British soldiers fought off an attack of 4,000 Zulus at Rorke's Drift, this being the subject matter of the film. An excellent book about the making of the film by Sheldon Hall is recommended if you can find it.


Both posters in excellent rolled condition.
