    Mussolini provides a commanding performance in a review of troops.

  • Description

    Item title reads: " Fascism's 5th Birthday. Signor Mussolini reviews 50,000 black shirts on anniversary of his historic march on Rome.".

    Rome, Italy

    Mussolini riding a horse at the head of a small group, enters the stadium arena and stops, giving a raised arm salute, standing up in the saddle. He wears a plumed cap. He shouts out the words of his speech. The assembled troops raise their hats on guns, like a forest. L/S from a high angle as the troops march along a roadway, past two obelisks and a lion.

    Note: Great example of Mussolini as leader.
