Aldrich's bleak political stance was bold, particularly up against the year's other big box office hits, STAR WARS, SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER and SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT.

Rating: B -- Intelligent sociopolitical thriller that is effective despite being overlong, stiffly acted and executing a rather nutty plot. Full Review

Twilight's Last Gleaming is above all a suspense film and the music is what keeps us in its grip - the music and Robert Aldrich's professionalism. Full Review

[A] tight, effective thriller about a disillusioned general who takes over a missile silo in Montana, placing nine nuclear warheads under his control.

Rating: 3.5/5 -- It's easier to admire Twilight for its intent and its astonishing cast than for what it actually achieves. Full Review

Product Description:

When American air force general Lawrence Dell (Burt Lancaster) is framed for a crime he didn't commit and sent to prison, he vows vengeance against those who put him there--including the president (Charles Durning). After staging a daring breakout with fellow inmates Powell (Paul Winfield) and Garvas (Burt Young), Dell commandeers a Montana missile silo and threatens to start World War III if the government doesn't divulge the sordid reasoning behind its Vietnam War policy.

Along with other late-20th-century political thrillers such as SILKWOOD, MIRACLE MILE, and THE CHINA SYNDROME, TWILIGHT'S LAST GLEAMING draws heavily and effectively on the fear of human annihilation by means of nuclear holocaust. Convincing sets and special effects aid director Robert Aldrich's creation of a believable crisis situation. Lancaster cements the film's terrifying fusion of realism and nightmarish suspense with his performance as the frenzied malcontent with his finger on the button.

Plot Synopsis:

A former Army general and two convicts take over a missile silo and blackmail the United States government.
