French label Carlotta Films is bringing back to French theaters a newly restored version of legendary director Robert Aldrich's Twilight's Last Gleaming (1977), starring Burt Lancaster, Roscoe Lee Browne, Joseph Cotten, and Richard Widmark. The restored version will premiere on May 1.
A renegade USAF general, Lawrence Dell, escapes from a military prison and takes over an ICBM silo near Montana and threatens to provoke World War 3 unless the President revels details of a secret meeting held just after the start of the Vietnam War between Dell and the then President's most trusted advisers.
