• Short Summary

    General Franco salutes supporters at a rally in Spain.

  • Description

    Spain.

    Various shots of General Franco appearing at a rally before a large crowd of people. Men in old-fashioned (mediaeval and 18th century?) costume carry lamps and spears, symbolising Spain's honour. Franco holds his right arm out in a salute, as do the people in the crowd. Commentator says Franco is "acting the part of El Caudillio - The Chief".

    Men in uniforms carrying rifles march through a town, passing Franco who is standing on a platform. Franco salutes the troops. Brief C/U of Franco.

    Note: duplicate story exists with Italian commentary - see separate record.
