Burt Lancaster means business in Scorpio

Lancaster is a CIA agent marked for death by his own boss, with the added wrinkles that the assassin on his trail is a young former protégé (Delon) and the one man who offers him help is his Soviet opposite number (Scofield).

An entertaining, action-filled tale of espionage, friendship, and betrayal—just the way we like’em, Scorpio’s score by Jerry Fielding (The Mechanic) is presented on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.

As supplier Twilight Time prints up only 3,000 copies of each title, be sure to keep an eye on the Twilight Time site or that of their distributor Screen Archives’s for the announcement of the prebook date (usually 2-3 weeks before the title’s street date) and get ready to reserve!
