16 August 2016
Eureka Entertainment have confirmed the 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 in October.
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 comes to UK home video for the first time as a Dual Format edition (Blu-ray and DVD) on 17th October 2016 from Eureka Entertainment as part of the Masters of Cinema series at the RRP of £19.99.
