I am no longer such a fan of the film because I now know too much about the real battle, but I appreciate the appeal and I would never have researched what is a fairly obscure war if that film hadn't piqued my interest. Also I salute the film for giving proper respect to the Zulus and their capabilities - respecting non-Western armies is hardly common.

I saw a still of Empress of Mars and that uniform is not just the period but the exact regiment that was at Rorke's Drift, so it is definitely what influenced Gattis.
