In 1937, the zeppelin Hindenburg leaves Germany on its fateful flight, with numerous passengers, includ-ing Leslie Charteris, creator of The Saint mysteries, SS officers, and many others. Charteris becomes embroiled in an investigation to discover who has planted a bomb on the zeppelin and when it will go off. Charlie O’Dowd’s enthusiastic performance is reflected in the pace of his words as he delivers the exciting action scenes. Collins has created a fast-talking 1930s mystery replete with interesting characters and plot twists. The production is marred only by decreased volume when the dialogue is delivered, but O’Dowd’s emotional involvement in the story moves it along.
