Synopsis by Hal Erickson

The principal selling angle for The Earth Cries Out was its timeliness. The film is one of the first to record the migration of European Jews to Israel following the 1948 pullout of the British. After exhausting its cache of stock footage, the film settles into banality by concentrating on the exploits of three different people: A terrorist, A British officer, and a colonizer. Though well photographed (and, in the English version, well dubbed), The Earth Cries Out pales in comparison to such Hollywood Israeli-based films as Sword in the Desert (49), The Juggler (52) and Exodus. The film was initially released in Italy as Il Grido Della Terra.
