    I don't know which studio has this title (originally
    released on VHS under KEY VIDEO), but I would love
    to see Twilight's Last Gleaming released to DVD.

    It was one of the last Allied Artists releases. Fox Video once had it under a Lorimar license.

    It is owned by Warner Brothers.

    Now that is interesting.

    I'll re-edit the thread title and hope Warner

    gets a look at this.

    It's actually good that this is owned by Warner.

    A better chance it will get released as the studio

    is just flooding the market with stuff like this.

    I completely agree. My VHS copy could stand being retired, and I'd welcome the opportunity to view this title in full, as opposed to momentary, wide screen.

    Just contacted Warner Bros. about this title.

    As is always the case, they offered an immediate and

    encouraging response....

    Especially timely since Paul Winfield died recently.

    I'd love a DVD of this film. I own the laser which is full frame but it suffers for it due to Aldrich constant use of the split screen.

    Was Vera Miles' role as the First Lady restored in any home video versions? If not, could it be restored for any future DVD edition?

    The First Lady character was never a part of any version of this film that I've ever seen.

    I really hope "By Dawn's Early Light" sells really well. Then the owners of "Twilight's Last Gleaming" might perhaps reconsider their reluctance to release the film on DVD.

    Ron I have some news about "Twilight's Last Gleaming". A Japanese R2 NTSC version is available from CD Japan. But as you can see by reading the description, it is not a worthy purchase. It is Fullscreen on the full-length version (Just like my Laserdisc) & the Widescreen version is cut for some unimaginable reason by 54 minutes. I almost wet my pants when I saw the film's name in the newsletter I get from CD Japan. I was then bitterly disappointed when I read the linked page. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    That's very interesting.

    I have to look and see which version I have on VHS.

    I believe the 144-minute version has always been

    available here.

    One good thing comes out of all this....

    The appearance of this DVD anywhere gives a more

    hopeful sign that we are closer to a domestic release.

    ....besides I was able to get the personal attention

    of some people at Warner Bros. to get this title into

    production.

    Anymore news on this, it has been a year and a half?

    BTW, I did buy "By Dawn's Early Light" also a good movie.

    John,

    I am sort of surprise this title hasn't been

    announced yet.

    I do know for a fact Warner had been working on it.

    I am guessing that it will be out in a few months.

    The studio is probably waiting for the proper window

    to release this DVD.
