A rare document of the Spanish cinema, scripted by none other than Franco himself under the pseudonym Jaime de Andrade and based on his own novel (which was written with a future film adaptation in mind). Directed by Jose Luis Saenz de Heredia, cousin of the founder of the Falange, this 1941 film is a fanciful autobiography of Franco, who describes the life and family he would have liked to have had, and stars matinee idol Alfredo Mayo.
