A “Disaster Movie” two-years in-the-making, The Hindenburg was released on Christmas Day, 1975. The movie is a fictionalized account of the Hindenburg zeppelin disaster of 1937. Based on the 1972 book by Michael M. Mooney, producer and director Robert Wise, along with a trio of writers, presents a sabotage theory that leads to the airship’s explosion and loss of dozens of lives.

Critics in ’75 were generally unkind, but The Hindenburg ended up as the 15th top grossing film of the year and grabbed two Oscars for sound and visual effects. George C. Scott, Anne Bancroft, William Atherton, Roy Thinnes, Gig Young, Charles Durning and many other notable actors appear in the epic.
