The Untold Story
A four-part series starring George C. Scott, Lee Grant
1: 1922. Benito Mussolini and his 'blackshirt' Fascists march on Rome, seize power and begin to rule by violence and intimidation. In a few short years he declares the Fascists the only political party in Italy and announces the beginning of a new empire. Nothing and no-one will stand in his way. This gripping portrait of 'II Duce's' rise and fall recreates his public, private and political life, and features a powerful performance by George C. Scott as the tyrant whose ruthless quest for power would eventually destroy all he loved.
