Mussolini The Untold Story (1985)This 7 hour mini-series is based on the memories of Vittorio Mussolini the oldest son of Italian dictator Benito Mussolini. The film opens in 1922 as Mussolini (George C. Scott) gathers his power through the use of his Black Shirt militia. Promoting himself as Caesar reincarnate Il Duce gains a national fervor that peaks after the Italian invasion of Abyssinia (Ethiopia) in 1935. In 1938 Mussolini attempted to promote peace at a Munich conference. Nonetheless he aligned himself with Hitler and drew his country into World War II. Of course this led to his country's downfall and his total dishonor.
