Of all these lost artifacts from the 70's, the one I'm most curious about is Son of Heatwave. The chap at Pimpadelic Wonderland is kind enough to describe the plot:
Jesus returns to earth and performs various miracles (tearing up a speeding ticket; giving a young woman large breasts, leaving everyone with an ecstatic smile on their face). Later he's confronted in the ghetto with comments like "If you really loved those kids, you'd turn them white!" After granting their wish he's immediately chased down the street by an angry mob and escapes by running across a swimming pool as the mob falls in the water. Eventually, a bunch of rednecks nail Jesus to a giant peace symbol and set him on fire. In the end, a bruised and bloodied Jesus grabs a machine gun and declares, "OK, no more Mr. Nice Guy!"
This is fast becoming a series of posts about Lost Films involving Jesus. I promise the third installment will cover a Jesus-free movie; but it IS the Lenten season, after all.
I think I said something at the beginning of this post about leaving tawdriness aside.
