Twilights Last Gleaming
Burt Lancaster
Full Movie

Ex POW Vietnam Vet USAF general takes over a Titan ICBM complex to expose the Pentagon’s criminal activity’s which cost the lives of 58,000 American soldiers and airmen as well as the tens of MILLIONS of South East Asians who were murdered by the US/NATO governments and threatens to provoke World War 3 unless the ‘president’ reveals details of a secret meeting held just after the start of the Vietnam War. 

We, the U.S., have lost over 158,000 American lives to the Vietnam war, and that count is still rising. Approx 58,000 in Vietnam.
100,000 or more to suicide and most of those occurred after the men came home. (Being ordered or forced to commit atrocities, including against your own fellow soldiers, is difficult at best for ANY human being to be able to process without extreme guilt which can often result in ‘suicide.’)
His accurate accounting gives us perspective on the cost of current and future wars, and its all about PROFIT FOR THE ‘ELITISTS’ AND THE BANKSTERS.…

More reviews:

Twilight’s Last Gleaming is a 1977 film directed by Robert Aldrich, starring Burt Lancaster and Richard Widmark.  The film is loosely based on a 1971 novel, Viper Three, by Walter Wager and is a West German/US co-production, shot mainly at the Bavaria studios.  A split screen technique is used at several points in the movie to give
the audience insight into the simultaneously occurring strands of the story line. The film’s title, which functions on several levels, is taken from The Star-Spangled Banner, the national anthem of the United States of America:  “O say, can you see, by the dawn’s early light / what so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming.”
Soured on America by his experiences as a POW in Vietnam, General Lawrence Dell (Burt Lancaster) hopes that his government will some day tell the truth about the Southeast Asian debacle, thereby allowing his country to embark upon a healing process.       

Regarded as a ‘dangerous embarrassment’ by the higher-ups, Dell is framed on a manslaughter charge and sent to prison. Escaping with three hardened convicts, Dell takes over an SAC base, threatening to launch nine Titan missiles if his demands that top-secret Vietnam files be made public are not met. Thus, the fate of the world rests in the hands of the ‘mentally unbalanced’ Dell, his former superior General MacKenzie (Richard Widmark), and U.S. president David Stevens (Charles Durning). For this picture, Edward Huebach and Ronald M. Cohen adapted Walter Wager’s novel Viper Three.

Also Staring “Paul Edward Winfield,” other movies he played in – The Terminator,  Damnation Alley and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan).  Well known for playing mail carrier, Cliff Clavin on the sitcom Cheers (John Ratzenberger), plays a role as a USAF Sgt. Kopecki,  Suit Case Nuclear Weapons Specialist or Special Atomic Demolition Munition (SADM) Specialist.  And the unforgettable (Burt Young) who played in the movies ROCKY and CONVOY and Back To School. 

Consider Vietnam ‘vet’ – the famous ‘Senator’ John McCain – TRAITOR to his fellow soldiers in Vietnam and to his country, only continues to LIE about HIS ‘war wounds’ and his stay in Nam at the famous ‘hotel’ for TRAITORS to the US, and yet continues to ‘serve’ in the crime syndicate in Wash DC as a Senator – of all things – with no punishment for his crimes against this nation.  Seems there is no punishment for selling out your fellow American Vietnam prisoners and for being a TRAITOR to the people and to this nation.
