  • Description

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

    German title reads: "Mossulini hilft bei der Ernte. Der Duce mit den Bauern von Littoria auf der Dresch-maschine."

    Presumably Italy.

    GV people working in a hay field handing up wheat onto the top of a lorry piled high.

    MV Benito Mussolini (Il Duce) feeding wheat into the threshing machine. He is helping with the harvest. We see a camera man recording this staged event. Many of the people around the Italian leader are not really dressed for work in the fields. Different angle shot of Il Duce feeding in wheat.

    Shots of Mussolini wearing a straw hat moving hay. As he climbs down from the thresher below below him chant "Duce". He reaches down to inspect the sacks of grain he has produced.
