Six Pix: Zeppelins

Six Pix presents a sextet of movie posters representing a particular actor/director/genre. You pick the one you feel is visually the most artistic or best sums up the film.

A collection of great zeppelin posters not featuring Jimmy Page or Robert Plant: Zeppelin Included are: The Lost Zeppelin (1929); Hell’s Angels (1930); Dirigible (1931); Zeppelin (1971); The Hindenburg (1975); and Black Sunday (1977). In this installment we’re bypassing planes, trains and automobiles in favor of movies featuring airships. Each of the posters presented here is an action-packed affair. And though only one of these is about the Hindenburg disaster, none of the dirigibles here fare that well. The Lost Zeppelin and Dirigible are about ill-fated journeys. Hell’s Angels and Zeppelin focus on World War I, while The Hindenburg takes place shortly before World War II. Black Sunday is the lone feature about a modern-day blimp. Though they’re all visually pleasing, there’s something about that gigantic blimp looming over the Super Bowl stadium that strikes a nerve.

Which one do you think is the winner? Should I have included something else? Tell me about it below!
