THE LOST ZEPPELIN / Tiffany-Stahl Productions - 1929
Today's early talkie is loosely based on the crash of the airship Italia and the international rescue effort that cost an early polar explorer his life. Then, the pilot who rescued crew members also crashed when returning to rescue more survivors and had to be rescued himself!
I have a sound clip for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located there by our crashed Moon rocket, NOW, Rufus The Gnat!.. Here's... THE LOST ZEPPELIN!
It cracks me up to see the formality of these characters, people just don't look like this anymore. Whut wif' our tattoos, goatees, shaved heads, funny looking clothes, technological diversions... Well, things have changed a bit.
The crew climb into the Zeppelin to start the journey and dude looks out his port hole.
They're off!!.. A horny Clamper moves in to console one of the crew member's pretty wife!
Back at the ranch, the women have in depth conversations about the expedition. You can hear them explain themselves in the sound clip.
The Zeppelin hits a lot of bad weather on its way to the South Pole, they keep in touch with the military communications command every step of the way.
The guys at an icy outpost hear the Zeppelin flying by, they run out to cheer and jump for joy!
Well, the damn thing crashes at the pole because of ice buildup.. What a miserable situation!!
This is a weird touch! Top still is of the crashed Zeppelin at the pole, bottom still shows a winter exposition back at home!! What a strange idea.
Here's our hero, the guy in his ski plane that saves the day... Hooray!!
Tune in tomorrow when Eegah!! saves the day for us with a special post, here, at The Dungeon!
