Movie Info

Nazi Germany's prized airship is threatened with sabotage, so Col. Franz Ritter (George C. Scott) is charged with its safety. As the massive zeppelin lifts off for a journey to the United States, Ritter investigates the passengers, looking for a potential bomber. Could it be anti-Nazi Countess Ursula von Reugen (Anne Bancroft), suspicious gambler Emilio Pajetta (Burgess Meredith), shifty advertising man Edward Douglas (Gig Young) or even the pilot, Capt. Pruss (Charles Durning) ?

Audience Reviews for The Hindenburg

  • Oct 24, 2012
    Underrated disaster film based on the real life 1937 disaster of the Hindenburg is very good entertainment for what it is. The film is far from perfect, but is much better than most disaster films of the era. Entertaining for what it is, the film relies on the sabotage conspiracy aspect of the disaster, suggesting that the airship was sabotaged. This plays out more like a popcorn disaster flick that ignores the facts, and that's the film's biggest weakness. I liked the film for what it was, but there were things that I didn't enjoy, such as the Gestapo trying to be the heroes and save the Hindenburg was out of place. I think it's sickening that they tried to make them the heroes of the film, and considering that Gestapo were a symbol of Nazi Oppression, they should never have put that in the film, and stuck to the facts. Facts are what make true disasters interesting to retell and captivate an audience, and I think they could have reworked some aspects of the film slightly to make it much more entertaining. Enjoyable, and flawed, The Hindenburg nonetheless is a good film and manages to overcome its flaws by culminating with a good climax. This film is very different than other films that appeared during this time because it was based on true events, and despite the fact that the film's plot was altered to try to give it more drama, this is a good film that should appeal to disaster film fans who are want something that really happened. The acting is pretty good for what it is, and there's enough to like here to make The Hidenburg a fun little flick to enjoy, a much underrated film that doesn't deserve all the flack it has received.

    One historical criticism, the 18 year old love interest was 12 in real life and did not survive. Otherwise, based on reasonably extensive reading of my own, the most likely scenario.
