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.
