Officers in confinement often self-segregate from the general prison population while in military confinement. The shame of confinement coupled with the resentment that many military convicts feel towards current or former officers means that they rarely interact with former enlisted prisoners. Dell, being a former general, would be very unlikely to associate with Powell, Garavs or Hoxey, much less get to know them well enough to plan a heist. See more »
America developed the Atomic Bomb in the 1940's and terrified the world with it's use on Japan. Ever since, the weapon has undergone enormous transformation from it's inception to the nightmarish mega-tonnage of today. Created to fly only once, these weapons of Mass destruction have been in hibernation waiting for someone lunatic enough to give them flight. Such a man is General Lawrence Dell (Burt Lancaster) who with the passionate fervor of a man with a mission expertly hijacks a missile complex. With the help of three escape convicts (William Smith, Paul Winfield and Burt Young) threaten to start World War III if their demands are not met. Such is the scenario of Twilight's Last Gleaming. The film contains a run-away-script which ignites the fears of the world and confront the President of the United States (Charles During, one of his finest roles to date) and his cabinet with the reality of World Destruction. The high drama and tense nail-biting excitement is one of the bi-products of this heart pounding film. All in all, a classic confrontation between a deceptive, administration and a general out to expose their callous indifferent nature towards war. Excellence performances by Joseph Cotton, William Marshall, and Richard Jaeckel. *****
