Blu-ray Release: Edge of Eternity

Blu-ray Release Date: Feb. 14, 2017
Price: Blu-ray $29.95
Studio: Twilight Time

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.

As supplier Twilight Time prints up only 3,000 copies of each title, be sure to head over to the Twilight Time site or that of distributor Screen Archives NOW so you can put in your prebook order!
