PG | | Adventure, Drama, History
A film that chronicles the events of the Hindenburg disaster in which a zeppelin burst into flames.
The scenes of the airship crashing were filmed in black and white with hand-held cameras so they could allow incorporation of the actual newsreel footage of the Hindenburg crash.
Sugar, next time, let's take the Titanic.
When The Hindenburg leaves Germany the time is stated as a few minutes past 8 in the evening in may just 6 weeks before the longest day and it is dark, in fact it would be quite light until past nine.
The film opens with the 1936 Universal logo followed by a newsreel prior to the credits.
In 1987, the BBFC passed this film with a PG rating for home video release with a run time of just 109 minutes (PAL) (25fps) which is about 113 minutes at NTSC conversion (24fps). In 2009 they then passed the film again with a PG rating for DVD release with a run time of 120 minutes (PAL) (25fps) which is the same as the theatrical time of 125 minutes at NTSC conversion (24fps). This suggests any video releases from 1987 through the 1990s in the UK were cut by around 12 minutes at 24fps.
