Usuthu!!!!

Learned gentlemen and long time readers of this humble blog will know that today is the anniversary of the Zulu War Battles of Isandlwana and Rorke's Drift in 1879 (see here).  But today is extra special as it is also the 50th Anniversary of the classic movie of the latter battle, Zulu.

Stop whatever you are doing, pour yourself youself a generous Gin and Tonic, and watch the movie to celebrate.  I am!

Just settling into my favourite armchair with a single malt and cigar to enjoy another viewing of this marvellous movie.

There is an interview with Stanley Bakers wife about the making of this movie which is well worth a look.

An exploration of debauchery, vice and other reasons to be a man!
