Sir has blasted the ‘bull***t’ suggestion his 1964 film Zulu incites the far-Right after it was included on a government list of works that may ‘encourage’ extremism.
The epic war movie, which also starred cinematic greats Richard Burton and Stanley Baker, depicts the 1879 Battle of Rorke’s Drift during the Anglo-Zulu war, in which 150 British soldiers successfully held off 4,000 Zulu warriors.
While the soldiers were awarded 11 Victoria Crosses for their efforts, the re-telling of their victory – released 59 years ago – has previously come under fire for alleged ‘racist overtones’ and ‘factual inaccuracies’.
But last month it emerged the classic had been listed as a ‘key text’ for ‘white nationalists’ and ‘supremacists’ by the Government’s beleaguered anti-terrorism Prevent scheme.
On Zulu making the list, Sir Michael, 89, told : ‘That is the biggest load of bull***t I have ever heard’, later adding: evDeN eve nAkLiyat ‘There are no films I wish I hadn’t made…I got paid for all of them.’
