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.Read more ›
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.

After the lackluster LBX DVD from the US, I wasn't sure what to expect from its UK counterpart.
