Eureka Entertainment to release Robert Aldrich’s TWILIGHT’S LAST GLEAMING, a nail-biting thriller starring screen legend Burt Lancaster and Richard Widmark, on home video for the first time in the UK in a Dual Format edition, as part of the Masters of Cinema series, on 17 October 2016.

High among idiosyncratic auteur Robert Aldrich’s most powerful and intense dramas, Twilight’s Last Gleaming is a thunderous political thriller and race-against-time doomsday classic.

Burt Lancaster stars as the Air Force general Lawrence Dell who seizes control of a stockpile of nuclear missiles to force the US President (Charles Durning) to tell the truth about the Vietnam war. As negotiations get ever more desperate, General MacKenzie (Richard Widmark) leads an elite fighting team into the complex to disable Dell and his team directly.

One of the most overlooked nail biters of the 1970s, Twilight’s Last Gleaming is presented here on UK home video for the first time in a new Dual-Format edition.

Review of TWILIGHT’S LAST GLEAMING

This is a film that has become increasingly relevant with a person, that many feel is certifiably insane, as president of the United States and the film shows remarkable prescience in predicting the collapse of normal checks and balances in a liberal democracy and how this can lead at least to an authoritarian regime if not necessarily totalitarian , and we in Australia are increasingly feeling the chill winds of this authoritarianism as our own Australian Government winds back cherished human rights all in the name of fighting 'terrorism'. Although made forty three years ago, this film is more timely than ever. One small problem in that the negative seems to have faded and so the print has a washed out look. Apart from that t is good to see two big Hollywood names, Burt Lancaster and Richard Widmark, who were noted for their progressive and tolerant left liberal political outlooks appearing together in a film that is never aging and even more relevant now.
