Sarah Palin Takes to the Silver Screen

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- In keeping with the imagery of John Wayne as a patriotic icon, unnanounced presidential candidate Sarah Palin went with the same title of The Duke's 1969 Western The Undefeated.

The sympathetic documentary casts Palin as brave, self-made and a warrior. It reveals her bold negotiations with oil and pipeline companies, her meteoric rise to the highest office in Alaska and her ability to tackle experienced politicians and business people.

"It wasn't something that daddy gave her; it wasn't something that the machine prepared the way for," an interviewee said in a teaser trailer. "She represented a threat to so many establishments," said another.

AMC theaters expected to run the feature-length documentary in over 10 major markets, but New York and Los Angeles notably were absent from the list.

Palin's Web site, SarahPAC.com, offered an early-release DVD of the movie to people who donated $100 or more to her political action committee.

Palin remains on the sidelines as a slew of Republicans continued to campaign for the party's presidential nomination, but many people still anticipate the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee to enter the race.

Palin lambasted President Obama in a note on July 9, a day after a jobs report revealed dismal numbers: "Hard-working taxpayers have been big government's Sugar Daddy for far too long, and now we're out of sugar."

Stephen K. Bannon directed 2011's The Undefeated, which Palin did not appear in, beyond file footage. But Palin reportedly arranged most of the interviews .
