Berlin (film #89 on Universal Newsreels). [Category: Military & Propaganda]

Newsreel story about conditions in Berlin just as the Berlin wall was going up. This is fairly moving, with scenes of bricks being put into place, troops on both sides patrolling the streets, and families being split apart by the wall. Lots of historical value here.

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