    March of Time -- outtakes -- Scenes from liberated Florence; escapees from a German prison camp welcomed by partisans

    Overview

    Description
    Low aerial shots of the Arno river with destroyed bridges and houses. People walk along the river and cross the Ponte Vecchio, which was the only remaining bridge over the Arno. Civilians walk along a street. A sign reading "Curfew for all troops 21:00 hours" appears on a brick wall. Italian police check the papers of several people as they walk from "no man's land" into Florence (from the dope sheet). There are destroyed buildings in the background. More shots of people on the Ponte Vecchio. An old man with a young boy look across the river at ruined buildings. Shot of a sign reading "Ponte Vecchio permesso il passaggio solo per pedoni e carrette a mano." Street scene with many people passing by large piles of rubble. Men walk down a street. Some of them are armed. The dope sheet indicates that these are partisans who are aiding people who have escaped from a German prison camp on the outskirts of Florence. The dope sheets states that there were about 1000 people in the camp and that the prisoners escaped through the sewer system. Shots of the bedraggled men receiving cigarettes from an American officer. Men climb out of a sewer hole; partisans rush to help him. Citizens stand in line to receive water from trucks full of purified water. A young boy fills up an empty wine bottle with water. A shot of a row of spigots and a young girl filling a bottle. In another location, women fill up containers of water from a spigot attached to a building. Some of the women wash clothes.
