Robert Aldrich’s Twilight’s Last Gleaming is intricate, intriguing and intelligent drama. Filmed in Munich, the setting is the US.

Burt Lancaster stars as a cashiered US Air Force officer who seizes a nuclear missile site to force public disclosure of secret Vietnam war policy goals. Charles Durning is outstanding as a US president who must respond to the challenge.

A Walter Wager novel, Viper Three, has been adapted into a suspenseful and taut confrontation.
