Famed nightclub performer Duke Mitchell (MASSACRE MAFIA STYLE) stars as Paul, a paroled gangster with an unholy scheme: to kidnap the Pope and charge "a dollar from every Catholic in the world" as the ransom.

Shot in 1975, GONE WITH THE POPE was unfinished at the time of Duke Mitchell's death in 1981. Actor Sage Stallone (DAYLIGHT, ROCKY V) and Academy Award-winning film editor Bob Murawski (THE HURT LOCKER, ARMY OF DARKNESS) of Grindhouse Releasing rediscovered GONE WITH THE POPE in 1995 and vowed to save it from obscurity. Murawski spent 15 years completing GONE WITH THE POPE from the surviving film elements and his company, Grindhouse Releasing, proudly presents the Holy Grail of exploitation cinema!

Press Quotes

A glorious masterpiece!

     —Jeff Meyers, Detroit Metro Times

An exemplary piece of exploitation entertainment.

     —Louis Albo, Los Angeles Times

Gloriously, hilariously offensive... an incredible hybrid, with Mitchell's decidedly dated sensibility delivered in a modern, masterfully quick-cut package.

     —Karina Longworth, LA Weekly

A far-out film...beautiful to look at, ridiculously entertaining!

     —Jeffrey Root, Film Radar
