Saw this book by chance which looked interesting and going by what looks to be Zulus on the front cover, may include ZULU DAWN and ZULU.

Sheldon Hall - it might be a question for you as a film historian ?

Do you have it and what do you know of its contents, worthwhile acquiring ?

Noticed this too, but may be well beyond the scope of the above books details, as it covers much later, beyond 1994

Thanks in advance for any info

Not quite the same Colin, but Cinema making in South Africa, you may have known about this before.

"The Adventurers" starring Jack Hawkins was filmed, though in black and white in the very same "Zulu" film location of Royal Natal National Park. Then in 1961, The Hellions, which incidentally, had a younger James Booth in it. (AS well as Gert Van Den Bergh "Adendorff"). That's all the more ironic, for as I'm sure you know, in the feature, "The making of Zulu", James mentioned, that he only ever saw the inside of Twickenham film studios when starring in Zulu.(the studio-borne part of "Zulu")!!
