Allies Take Rome (film #5 in the D-Day and Beyond section of WPA Film Library). [Category: Military & Propaganda]

British newsreel footage of Allied troops parading through Rome after their victory. Also featured is some mildly disturbing footage of crowds going after traitors and footage of the pope commemorating the Allied victory. Pretty standard, but historically interesting.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: *. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
