Description by OLDIES.com:
The Lost Zeppelin (1929) is an epic spectacle from the very earliest days of sound pictures, and the primitiveness of its audio track is more than compensated for by the amazingly realistic visual effects. Produced while Admiral Byrd was making his first expeditions to the South Pole, and only two years after Lindberg's transatlantic flight, this film captures the earliest days of the globalization of media, when radio brought these triumphs to the eager ears of millions of people around the world.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 121 ratings.
This is a surprisingly good film to come from Tiffany-Stahl, a Poverty Row studio. The art direction and sets are above average. They obviously spent some money on them. Acting is slightly above average, as with most early talkies.
OK. It's old and the sound is bad and the acting borders on super melodramatic at times and the special effects and almost laughable. What else can I say about it? Well,m if you want to see one of the first adventure "talkies" this isn't that bad a choice.
