The Hindenburg #USDVD0021
The Hindenburg
Universal Studios

 The movie, The Hindenburg is a fictionized account of what happened to the airship on its last voyage to the U.S.  The central plot of the movie centers on a German, Luftwaffe officer Franz Ritter who is sent to join the airship crew in order to investigate the passengers and prevent any sabotage to the Hindenburg which would be a huge embarassment to the Nazi regime.  The airship departs Germany and days latter begins to hook-up to the morring mast at the U.S. Naval Air Station at Lakehurst, New Jersey on May 6th, 1937 when suddenly it is rocked by explosions which destroy the airship and kill many of the passengers and crew.  The viewer is left with the impression that it was sabotage that destroyed the airship but more recent research suggests that it was actually static electricity produced from a recent storm that made contact with the clothe covering thus setting off a chain of explosions which were all captured in black and white news footage.  This movie won two Academy Awards for Visual Effects and Sound Editing.  Starring George C. Scott, Anne Bancroft and William Atherton among others.  Widescreen in color.  Released in 1975.  Runtime 125 minutes.
