Trivia

Reassembling the film was a challenge because there was no existing script. They had to use scenes written out in notebooks, on pieces of paper, and even on envelopes and cocktail napkins. Another challenge was that 5 reels of the rough cut were missing and never found (reels 9-13). They had to go through the negatives to find missing material. See more »

Crazy Credits

At the end of the credits, you can hear Duke Mitchell say, "OK, cut it." See more »

Amazing trailer, awful film.
5 June 2010 | by rob-m-neilsonSee all my reviews

After viewing the trailer since it first came out, and showing it to all my friends I would say I was VERY MUCH looking forward to seeing this film.

Man was I disappointed...They threw every good part of the film into the trailer and all of the good lines in it just ended up being throw-away dialogue in the actual story.

There are a few good scenes in this film, but they could have turned this into an amazing 15 minute short instead of making me suffer. It's crazy to think that from an original 5 hour rough cut they couldn't find better material to pack into this film. It also didn't help at all that there must not have been a focus puller for this film, and roughly 1/4 of the film is all out of focus. The sound mix is barely audible as well.

Save your money, watch the trailer...watch it again and again so you may imagine that Gone With the Pope is a great film.
