• Short Summary

    Bruno Mussolini, son of Il Duce, has come to Spain to fly for Franco's fascists.

  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown

    Title reads: "Mussolini Flies For Franco". American voiceover

    Spain.

    CU Bruno Mussolini (son of Il Duce) pulls on a flying helmet. He climbs into the cockpit of a biplane. The voiceover says that he has come to Spain to fight for the Fascists under Franco in the Spanish Civil War. The plane takes off.

    Aerial views of buildings damaged by Fascist bombing. More ground level views of bomb damage. People walking around the streets of Madrid. There are lots of sandbags to protect buildings.

    May be a copy of UN 59 K. The entry in the UN book describes this as Republican - Street Fighting and Mountain Warfare - clearly nothing to do with this item.
