Finally! This is the Stereo 2.0 DVD we Hindenburg buffs have been waiting for! This 1976 picture won an Academy Award for effects wizard Peter Berkos' incredible sound-effects. Alas, there has been no Region 2 DVD that does justice to the 70 mm Six-Track stereo audio track ... until now.

The difference between the mono VHS/DVD versions of this movie and the new Stereo 2.0 DVD release is incredible. THIS is how the movie was meant to be experienced!

The musical soundtrack by David Shire soars in stereo as the Hindenburg looms into view in the opening shot. Forget the actors, the airship is the REAL star of this movie. And the stereo fun really begins when the four diesel-powered propellers roar to life with a thunder when the Hindenburg lifts off from Frankfurt. The stereo sound is incredible.

And then there's the storm, with claps of thunder booming all around you as the airship fights her way out over the Atlantic.

The stereo sound recording creates a fabulous atmosphere inside the airship. Duraluminium struts creak and groan and guy-wires squeal against the backdrop of the roar of the motors -- with sounds coming from all sides. Any Hindenburg buff who has watched this movie in mono in the past has a real thrill in store. The stereo sound experience is like watching this film for the first time.

The aural high point, of course, is when the two crewmen are attempting to repair a hole in the port-side horizontal fin. The musical score combines with the sound effects to heighten tension, and when Capt. Pruss gives the order for full-power on all four motors and elevator up 5 degrees -- the stereo sound effects make you feel you are about to be blown off the fin yourself!

This is a "must" for any dirigible buff.

No film that Pauline Kael despised on principle (in this case the principle that it was directed by Robert Wise) can be all bad, and so it proves with The Hindenburg, which falls somewhere between a countdown-to-catastrophe period political thriller a la Tora! Tora! Tora!, 70s conspiracy movie and by-the-numbers disaster movie. It's as a disaster movie that it fails the most: the destruction of the Hindenburg was simply too quick to make for much of a climax, and playing the famous black and white newsreel footage intercut with unimpressive cutaways to the less than stellar cast at the end feels like a real cheat, especially since it's often clumsily handled. On the plus side it offers a clever screen story from legendary Monday Mystery Movie TV scribes William Levinson and Richard Link that sees George C. Scott's reluctant Luftwaffe Colonel sent by Goebbels on the airship's last voyage to uncover a plot to destroy the ship and thus embarrass the Nazi regime that uses it for their own propaganda. While the real investigations in Germany and America give the film some momentum, unfortunately the search for suspects among this particular sedately paced Airship of Fools is less than urgent: indeed, it's pretty obvious who is behind the plot and how Scott will react when he uncovers him.Read more ›

For a movie made in the mid- seventies the SFX are quite breathtaking. The cast is full of B listers with the exception of George C Scott. It was to my bitter disapointment that the film has not benifitted from a makeover. The picture quality is quite patchy, certainly not up to the standard we have come to expect as normal these days. Hence the 3 stars. If there was ever a film to be re-mastered it is this although there is still much to enjoy, especially the final act where the actual news reel footage it seamlessly edited into the film. A genuine forgotten classic which deserves restoring to its former glory.

This film made in 1975, about the ill fated air ship Hindenburg, is a fictitious account of why the air ship exploded. It has a host of stars in it including George C. Scott, Anne Bancroft, and Burgess Meredith. The story concerns a conspiracy theory, with a bomb having been planted on board. It also has a good music score by David Shire, and was directed by Robert Wise.

Throughout the 70's there were 'disaster' films being made, from planes crashing, to burning buildings. This one was made as a 'disaster' film about an air ship. All of these films were made on high budgets, with all star casts, and this one is no exception. Glossily made, they centered on intense characterization at the beginning, so the audience would care about the characters, and also drawing the audience into the film. Then the action would start about a third through the film. At the time everybody flocked to cinemas to watch these films, and now they are all available on dvd/blu ray. They are all enjoyable as entertainment, and if you like these sort of films, you will not be disappointed with this one.

Picture Quality is very good, with sharp definition, and strong colours. This dvd release has been transferred in it's original aspect ratio of 2.35:1, and the sound is in 2.0 stereo.
