  • Short Summary

    Vertiginous footage of men working on the roof of the Basilica of St. John in Rome.

  • Description

    The great Basilica of St. John in Rome is featured. Various shots of the building. Men clamber around on the statues - they are either cleaning them or checking them for damage.

    "A risky job for the watchful fellows who keep them intact far above the street." reads an intertitle. A man walks out on the arm of a statue. It looks precarious. C/U of him sitting on the statue's arm - Rome visible below. Low angle shot of him on the arm of the statue.

    Very short segment - incomplete.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 534.
