English Summary

The Hindenburg is a 1975 American Technicolor film based on the disaster of the German airship Hindenburg. The film stars George C. Scott. It was produced and directed by Robert Wise, and was written by Nelson Gidding, Richard Levinson and William Link, based on the 1972 book of the same title by Michael M. Mooney.

A highly speculative thriller, the film and the book it is based on depict a conspiracy of sabotage leading to the destruction of the airship. In reality, while the Zeppelins were certainly used as a propaganda symbol by the Third Reich, and anti-Nazi forces might have had the motivation for sabotage, the theory of sabotage was investigated at the time, and no firm evidence for such sabotage was ever put forward.A. A. Hoehling, author of the 1962 book Who Destroyed the Hindenburg?, also about the sabotage theory, sued Mooney along with the film developers for copyright infringement as well as unfair competition. However, Judge Charles M. Metzner dismissed his allegations.

Filmed largely in color (with a mock newsreel presented in black-and-white at the beginning of the film), a portion of the film is presented in monochrome, edited between portions of the historical Hindenburg newsreel footage shot on May 6, 1937.

Hungarian Summary

1937-ben a németek útjára indítják a Hindenburgot, az első luxusléghajót, amely nem kevesebb célt tűzött ki maga elé, mint meghódítani a kontinensek között elterülő végeláthatatlan óceán légterét. Az indulás előtt az amerikai német nagykövetséget figyelmeztetik, hogy a léghajót szabotázs fenyegeti, a Hindenburgot fel akarják robbantani. Göbbels (David Mauro) megbízást ad Franz Ritter ezredesnek (George C. Scott), hogy szálljon fel a Hindenburgra és mindenáron akadályozza meg a merényletet.


Many of the fictional characters are based on actual people. For example: Franz Ritter is based on Fritz Erdmann, Karl Boerth is based on Eric Spehl, as well as a few others.
