Michael Caine blasts claim ‘Zulu’ is ‘white nationalist’: ‘Load of bulls–t’


Sir Michael Caine has one word for how he feels about an anti-terrorism study that his film “Zulu” promotes white nationalism: “bulls-t.”

The 1964 film was included in a study by the British “Stop the program,” Claiming that it — along with works such as “The Lord of the Rings” books, William Shakespeare’s writings and “Great British Railway Journeys” documents — could lead audiences to right-wing extremism.

But 89-year-old Kane condemned the claim in an interview audience, said, “That is the greatest load of oxen—that I ever heard of.”

“Zulu” tells the story of Rorke’s draft battle in the midst of the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879, including a scene in which 150 British soldiers battle 4,000 Zulu warriors.

But the Daily Mail Told that The film is reportedly facing criticism for “racist statements” and “factual inaccuracies”.

Kane, a two-time Oscar winner, was discovered by “Zulu” producers while performing in a play at a theater in London’s West End.

“An American director who was in the audience saw me and gave me a part in the film ‘Zulu’ as a posh officer. It made me a star and I never went on stage again,” he told The Spectator.
