Mormon Pic Skids Out

That, and other news, in today’s Political Panorama.

Mitt Romney said he wouldn’t see it, and so too did many filmgoers.

“September Dawn,” which depicts a particularly sad chapter in the history of the church, draw just $617,000 on 857 screens, for a per-screen average of just $720.

The film depicts the 1857 massacre of 120 people, including children, by a group of Mormon extremists in southern Utah. Romney has said little about the film, but of the massacre, he told the Associated Press: “That was a terrible, awful act carried out by members of my faith. There are bad people in any church and it’s true of members of my church, too.”

Stars on the Stump: Carly Simon, Mary Steenburgen and Ted Danson headlined a fund-raiser for Hillary Clinton over the weekend at the outdoor Tabernacle on Martha’s Vineyard.
