A towering ensemble of performers in a film not be missed
I agree with the general drift of the comments logged to this date. I would add only this: as I watched John McCain expunge the Bush administration from the recent history of the United States this film sprang to mind. To say more would spoil the climax of the film. Burt Lancaster gave master classes in film acting in many of his movies, and in none more so that in Twilight. The other actors were superb. I had the strange experience of seeing the film on network television in 1977, and as the closing credits began to roll, my phone rang. It was a person I had not seen or heard from in over a year, her first words being: "Did you see THAT?" So much for Twilight and telepathy.
