Without Pity (Italian: Senza pietà) is a 1948 Italian film directed by Alberto Lattuada from a script by the director himself, Federico Fellini and Tullio Pinelli, from an original story by Ettore Margadonna.
As World War II ends, some African-American soldiers refused to abandon northern Italy to return to the United States, due to the racial intolerance there; deserting instead. Of them, Jerry (John Kitzmiller) falls in love with Angela (Carla Del Poggio), a local girl.
Without Pity was banned in the United States and British occupation zones in Germany, but was popular with Italian audiences.
