Twilight Time

Joseph Wambaugh’s breakthrough novel went through a blender to fit George C. Scott into the narrative, but it’s still a great cop show with terrific work from Stacy Keach and Scott Wilson, not to mention Jane Alexander and Rosalind Cash. The pro-cop agenda has a definite tone of personal experience, and the grim finish is anything but feel-good puffery. With Erik Estrada, Clifton James, James Sikking, Isabel Sanford, William Atherton, Ed Lauter, Dolph Sweet and Kitten Natividad. On Blu-ray from Twilight Time.
