Quotes from

Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: It's fear dries the mouth, isn't it? When a man's as thirsty as this.
Lieutenant John Chard: I could have drunk a river.


Lieutenant John Chard: [shouting] Front rank fire! Rear rank fire, reload!
Lieutenant John Chard: [repeats a few times as one line of soldiers fires and the other kneels and reloads their rifles]


Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength?
Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

Facts about

The then Minister of Native Affairs banned the film for screenings to black South Africans as "it might incite them to rise up in revolt".
Because the film was shot in South Africa, the cast and crew were lectured on the need to refrain from fraternizing with the topless tribal dancers since the penalty for interracial sex in the country at the time was seven years hard labor.
Director Cy Endfield wanted a camera crane that was lightweight when disassembled so that it could be packed and transported through the African bush. Ken Eddy designed the first Filmair Giraffe camera crane for the job and in so doing began the world's best known camera crane company. This key piece of film gear is still used in the movie industry.
