Opening Title: Premier Mussolini was the first foreign person to make a talking picture. Here is the historic film: Scene: Mussolini walks through garden to camera. Stands with arms crossed. VERY ROUGH TRANSCRIPTION OF SPEECH. I am very glad to be able to express my feelings to the American nation. Friendship which Italy looks to millions of citizens who from..... from Pacific to Atlantic..... United States is very deeply rooted in our hearts. This feeling created by mutual interest in preparation of an even brighter era in the life of both nations. I agree - the wonderful energy of the American people and I feel....... my fellow citizens who are working to make America great. I salute the great American people, I salute the Italians of America who unite in the love of the nation.
