"The Undefeated" to Document Gov. Palin's Record in IA Debut

A full-length feature film, The Undefeated documents Governor Palin's record and answers questions about her resignation that continue to perturb some potential supporters, Scott Conroy, Real Clear Politics reported tonight. The project commenced over six months ago when Gov. Palin approached Rebecca Mansour, a close aide of hers with the directive to request Stephen K. Bannon, a conservative film maker produce a video series. Bannon agreed on one condition: that it be a full-length feature movie and that he finance the $1 million cost.

Gov. Palin and her husband Todd viewed a rough cut version of the two-hour film in Arizona last Wednesday, according to Conroy's report.
When it premieres in Iowa next month, the film is poised to serve as a galvanizing prelude to Palin's prospective presidential campaign -- an unconventional reintroduction to the nation that she and her political team have spent months eagerly anticipating, even as Beltway Republicans have largely concluded that she won't run.
Real Clear Politics also got a copy of the two-hour rough cut.

Much of the film maker's work was secretly conducted in Alaska over many weeks, Conroy reported. The movie is divided into three parts and will be produced in two versions. "An unrated edition will contain some obscene anti-Palin language and imagery, while the other is targeted to a general audience and will seek a PG-13 rating from the Motion Picture Association of America."

The movie has received rave reviews from Governor Palin, Tim Crawford, Treasurer, SarahPAC, and Rebecca Mansour who commissioned it:
SarahPAC's treasurer Tim Crawford confirmed that "The Undefeated" was a hit with Palin.

"The governor thought it was great," Crawford said.
Bannon's film also resonated with members of Palin's staff, including Mansour.
"I'm a huge fan of Steve's work," Mansour said in a statement to RCP on Tuesday. "His film on President Reagan, ‘In the Face of Evil,' is my favorite documentary, and his ‘Generation Zero' was a rallying cry for the Tea Party movement early on. I think his new film really captures the essence of Governor Palin's stewardship of Alaska, and I think people will be really surprised by it. It shatters so many false stereotypes because it shows what she actually accomplished as governor. You can't leave it thinking the same way about Sarah Palin."

The movie will debut in Iowa with subsequent release to New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada. Thence, it is to be released to between 50 and 100 markets nationwide. Copies of The Undefeated may also be gifted to SarahPAC donors.
