Wallaby? No, my friend, I am a Koala! A protected species that cannot be exported or shot at. :wink:

OK, for this piece of trivia, in the movie "Zulu", at least three Zulu Warriors attacking Rorkes' Drift are seen wearing what anachromism?

Now for something really obscure........

In the film Breaker Morant, what were the tartans worn by the Scots infantry in the film and why was it chosen ?

Cameron Highlanders? Their tartan is known as the Cameron of Erracht. As to why, apart from the fact the Camerons actually made up the firing party IIRC, I have no idea why it was chosen.

Think what was happening to the Army in South Australia at the time it was made.....

OK, which war movie had its filming schedule originally set at six weeks but ended up taking 16 months to film? Its star suffered a heart-attack in the middle of filming apparently from a drugs overdose. Many of the aircraft used in the filming were called away to make real attacks on rebels in the country it was being filmed. Name the movie please?

Sorry,"Bob the builder",isn't that movie.

Another clue: twenty years after,the same director made another war movie (this time,ofcourse,in color).
Have a good day! :)
