We go once more into the breach with Screen Capture Theatre and explore the 1975 film "The Hindenburg." Please fasten your seat belts and grab your sickness bags.
|Gutentag and welcome aboard the Hindenburg,|
Germany's glorious lighter-than-air craft powered
solely by the bottled ecstasy of Hitler youth!
|The Hindenburg is the ultimate in transatlantic travel,|
1937-style. The amenities are so posh, you'd think you
were on the Titanic! Elegant salons, cozy bedrooms,
sleek observation decks -- and don't forget the Sunday
Night Sauerkraut Supper!
|Naturally, such a majestic craft has an impressive guest list,|
beginning with Col. Erich Von Blowheim, the reluctant Nazi.
|Blowheim is on board to foil the plot of a saboteur, and to|
go through everyone's luggage as often as possible.
|Also aboard is the Countess von Mrs. Robinson, who keeps|
calling Blowheim "Benjamin" in honor of a lost love.
|And then there is LeBeau from "Hogan's Heroes" --|
|-- and future Gil Grissom from "CSI."|
|Meanwhile, back at the Hindenburg ...|
|... LeBeau is offering a one-man performance of|
"Fiddler on the Roof."
|The Nazis are so offended they clear the room.|
Or maybe it's just excessive flatulence from the Sunday Night
|As the Hindenburg nears its New Jersey destination,|
Blowheim is getting tired of re-folding everyone's
|But then he finally finds the explosives that will destroy|
the Hindenburg! Can he defuse the bomb in time?
