Zulu – In 70 mm Technirama More Pictures


I did a Post on this film some months ago – and on the Technirama Process but have returned to it again – for today’s article.

Zulu, (1964), one of the last films made in Technirama, but a stunning example of the image quality available in the process, and a really good film, too.  Some lucky cinema – goers would have  seen the film in it’s 70mm format – and that would be impressive. 

ZuluThe film was produced by Cy Endfield and Stanley Baker, who also starred along with newcomer Michael Caine.

Zulu 2

Zulu is  a well made film recounting the historic battle of Rorke’s Drift, between a handful of British troops and a massive Zulu army.

Nowadays, I don’t know if there will ever be another showing of Zulu in Technirama 70 – there must be prints of the film that exist – but how wonderful it would be to have a suitable cinema with a 70 mm projector. On the huge screen this film – impressive by any standards – would be really mind blowing when screened as it should be seen. Very few of us have seen the film this way.

If, from my enquiries, I can find a print and a suitable 70 mm projection location then I will report back on this Blog.

Who knows, we just might be lucky.
