THE DICTATOR'S PLAYBOOK: "FRANCISCO FRANCO"
February 6, 2019  | By David Bianculli

PBS, 10:00 p.m. ET

 

Back in 1975, the name of Francisco Franco was a running-gag punch line by Chevy Chase on the first year of “Weekend Update” on Saturday Night Live. That was the year Franco died – but this PBS documentary shows how he came to, and held on to, power during his lifetime, ruling Spain from 1939 until his death. Check local listings.
