Fury Over Spain DVD

A history connoisseur's dream and a compelling, off-beat war documentary all in the same film, "Fury over Spain" chronicles 1936, the first bloody year of the Spanish civil war. Location filming by omnipresent government cameramen helps lend a raw, earthy feel to the desperate, life-and-death struggle against General Francisco Franco's Nationalist insurgents. Distributed as a propaganda film in the United States and England to help garner public and international support for the Republican-coalition forces, the narrator does not mention the word communism even once during the film, despite much evidence of its presence. The same narrator only alludes to "Franco's unofficial allies"; neither Germany nor Italy is named. This is a fascinating exposé of a very troubled time.

Spain, USA, 1937, B&W 53 minutes.
