Three years before establishing his March of Time film series, documentary producer Louis de Rochemont served up the historical review Cry of the World. The 65-minute film covers the years 1914 to 1932, from the outbreak of WWI to the Lindbergh kidnapping. Among the personalities and subjects covered are Mussolini, Hitler, Stalin, the Russian Revolution and the Women's Suffrage Movement. Most of the footage has been culled from the archives of Fox Movietone News, including a delightful couple of minutes with a surprisingly benign George Bernard Shaw. Cry of the World was released by the International Film Foundation.
