Stock footage of the dirigible Hindenburg was retouched, frame by frame, to blot out the swastikas emblazoned on the airship's tail. See more »
The radio direction finder used by the German Police is clearly marked as made by an American Company and sports a compass rose marked in English ('E' for East and so on, instead 'O' for Osten). Even if the German police would operate imported equipment, the markings would be in German.
And it is unlikely that the Nazi regime would allow import of anything the German industry was able to produce, not to mention that German radio equipment of the time was among the best in the world. See more »
excellent in all respects.Probably one of the finest in the entire series. The setting is unique and it's a well done mystery. Documentary footage of the '36 Olympics and the Hindenberg are well situated in this drama. The political atmosphere of Germany during the mid-late 30's is, however, overlooked. Warner Oland again is at his best.This is a must see for Chan fans
