End of Benito Mussolini One day before Adolf Hitler committed suicide in his Berlin bunker, Italian fascist leader Benito Mussolini met a more public end. Mussolini and Clara Petacci, his mistress, were caught by communist partisans while trying to flee into Switzerland. On April 29, 1945, the two were shot to death in the small village of Giulino di Mezzegra. Their corpses were then taken to the Piazzale Loreto in Milan and strung up on meat hooks above a gas station. Crowds threw stones at the bodies for several days.

Rudolph Valentino Funeral Riot Silent movie heartthrob Rudolph Valentino died from complications of pleuritis on August 23, 1926 at the age of 31. Such was Valentino's popularity that an estimated 100,000 disorderly people lined the streets of New York City to pay their respects at his funeral. The arrangements were handled by the Frank Campbell Funeral Home. The event was a combination of facrce and drama. Suicides of despondent female fans were widely reported. Windows were smashed as fans tried to force their way into the funeral parlor. What can only be described as an all-day riot erupted on August 24. More than 100 mounted officers and NYPD's Police Reserve were deployed to try to restore order. A phalanx of officers lined the streets for the remainder of the viewing. Drama occurred inside the funeral home too. Polish actress Pola Negri, claiming to be Valentino's fiancée, collapsed in hysterics while standing over the actor's coffin. Four fascist Blackshirts formed an honor guard, which was purportedly dispatched by Italian dictator Benito Mussolini. Afterward the honor guard was revealed to have been comprised of actors. It was a publicity stunt orchestrated by the funeral home.
