The Lighthouse Is The Rocket!
There is a very thin line between genius and madman, and Schnipps seems to have crossed it by putting a rocket in a Lighthouse! It's no wonder he saw himself as Napoleon Bonaparte. But originally he was to have been either Adolf Hitler, or some NAZI scientist out for revenge for the loss of the war and the destruction of Germany. which is actually the plot behind Ian Flemmings novel Moonraker.
The film of the exploding Lighthouse is actually film footage taken from Gerry Anderson's Thunderbirds, if you didn't already know. And next is a picture is of the exploding Lighthouse.
