Mussolini: The Untold Story is a television biographical miniseries drama that aired on November 24-26 1985. The series followed the rise, rule, and downfall of the Italian dictator Benito Mussolini. Similar to Hitler: The Rise of Evil, the miniseries is spoken in English instead of the titular character’s native language. Mussolini’s private life features prominently in the series, including his long-term romance with his mistress Clara Petacci.

The series begins in 1922, as Mussolini gathers his power through the use of his Black Shirt militia. Promoting himself as Julius 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 the Munich Conference. Nonetheless, he aligned himself with Adolf Hitler. Mussolini drew Italy into World War II, which led to his country’s decline, Mussolini’s fall from power, and eventual roadside execution of Mussolini and Petacci. The Series was Nominated for two Primetime Emmy Awards.
