The flick ZULU
is on tonight, Fri., March 2, on the
Canadian History Channel n' not Sunday..............the shame!
the *real* shame is that the masterpiece, 'Zulu', is still, as
inconceivable as this might seem, *not* available on DVD! Nor, I might
add, is "Waterloo" or "The Charge of the Light Brigade" (UK 1960's
version)!!!! Nor, 'Zulu Dawn'!!!!
But - not "Zulu", even though it was Michael Caine's first starring
role!!!! Even though the late, great, John Lennon went 'on record' in
print, as going to see it, and liking it!!! [trivia fact: he literally goes
"on the record" as well - it's the movie referred to in the lyrics of A Day
in the Life: " I saw'r a film today, Oh Boy - The English Army had just
won the war...." hey, forget the fact it was primarily a bunch of Welshmen
- he wasn't an historian, and 'Welsh" wouldn't fit the meter of the
song...] I shake my head in wonder...
Like, what's with those movie mogul guys?!?! Is there any way, short of
sending the sort of threatening letter that might end up inducing the local
SWAT team to pay a visit and surround one's house, to get the DVD producers
to sit up, take notice, and get on the ball?
