Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Pre-CGI Historical Espionage Drama George C. Scott was one of the most powerful, intelligent actors to ever hit the big screen and ranks up at the top of the actors of his generation. I have never seen him give anything less than an outstanding performance and he could elevate any film that he was in just by walking onto the set. Whether as a star in Patton or Islands in the Stream or as a character actor in his early days in The Hustler and Dr. Strangelove, he was truly one of a kind. The Hindenburg gives him an excellent opportunity to anchor what is basically a whodunit set on the ill-fated Zeppelin's final voyage. He plays a German intelligent agent who has been assigned to ferret out a saboteur who plans on destroying the airship. Anne Bancroft and Burgess Meredith lend excellent support in the cast along with William Atherton in one of his first roles. The dependable veteran director Robert Wise does his usual quality work behind the camera and the special effects still hold up well today despite the lack of any CGI technology to help recreate the spectacle. This fictional account of the Hindenburg's final days makes for a great mystery thriller. Recommended. 12/29/2011
