Mitchell protected them-- in Court and in a pool of his own blood--from the police, the Mafia and City Hall, who wanted to stop them from becoming counter-cultural icons. An elderly local priest accepts The Gaslight's message and confronts his own religion, his homosexuality, and the fear gripping the country over the Civil Rights Movement, the Red Scare and the Cuban Missile Crisis.
