    Synopsis:
    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.
