Thrillingly shot in Cinemascope in and around the Grand Canyon, director Don Siegel’s (Private Hell 36) crime actioner Edge of Eternity (1959) stars Cornel Wilde (Leave Her to Heaven) as a hard-jawed deputy with a past, suddenly dealing with a plague of murders.
There’s mystery, there’s romance (Victoria Shaw is the tough, attractive woman with whom Wilde teams), and above all there are thrills, including a climax shot by legendary cinematographer Burnett Guffey (Birdman of Alcatraz) to rival any cliffhanger ever put on screen.
Daniele Amfitheatrof’s score – available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track – provides heightened suspense.
Also included as a bonus features is an audio commentary with film historians C. Courtney Joyner and Nick Redman.
