The Hindenburg

Robert Wise makes a virtue of the fact that the end of the movie is common knowledge. George C. Scott's character is far too self-assured, even in his internal conflicts, to be compelling. The script relieves him of all responsibility for his actions because he's so darn stolid. The special effects make the whole thing worthwhile.
