Those groovy exploitation dealers at Grindhouse Releasing
are finally releasing Duke Mitchell
’s Gone With The Pope
. I have been waiting to see this film for some time and missed the only theatrical showing in St. Louis because it was shown at a different theater on the same nights I did a Late Nite Grindhouse show 5 years ago. This is awesome news for fans coupled with the release of Duke Mitchell
’s later film, Massacre
Mafia Style, hitting Blu-Ray later this month.
