Two-thousand years of Grecian art, culture and politics are distilled into this 45-minute documentary. The film opens with fascinating glimpses of such landmarks as the Acropolis, the Parthenon and the Coliseum. The "present" is represented with newsreel footage from the Greek Independence Day celebration in Athens on August 4, 1940. Premier Metaxas heads a parade of dignitaries from all corners of the tiny nation, culminating in a visit at the Tomb of the Unknown Greek Soldier. At the time Greece on the March was filmed, the country had not yet had its centuries-old democratic government yanked away by the Nazis; as a result, the film ends on a note of triumph, with Greece's defeat of Italy in the recent military skirmish between the two nations.
