One epic film I remember Michael in was the 1964 Zulu. A great depicting of what happened at the battle of Rorke’s Drift between the British Army and the Zulu’s in 1879 during the Anglo-Zulu war. Very much against the odds a small number of 150 troops and some already hospitalised manage to defend a small garrison against an intense assault by 3,000-4,000 Zulu warriors. Eleven Victoria Crosses were awarded to the defenders. This is the most given in a single battle and it has been said this may be in part due to the Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli wanting to draw away from the defeat of the first British invasion on Zululand. This is now some of South Africa.
The Victoria Cross metal is the highest award that can be given and it is awarded for gallantry in the presence of the enemy. Very few VC medals have been given since WW2 hence the rarity and privilege of this award.
I don’t think Michael Caine has ever lost his cockney accent and working class roots. He’s said to personified British cool. Michael even has his own movie theatre in his home which he said cost him £100,000 to build – that is cool. Many sketch shows have impersonated Michael Caine’s voice. He was quoted on saying on the Parkinson’s Show that “they’ve even been making birthday cards from it”.
‘It’s your Birthday today – not a lot of people know that’ HAH
