As the Earth Turns
(Richard Lyford, 1938, US, 45 min)
As the Earth Turns is a 45 minute, sci-fi film that foresaw WWII, future-technology, climate change, and the extreme need for peace, as the world was drifting back into world war again. The main character, PAX (Peace in Latin), is played by Lyford, himself, a scientist who desperately wants peace. He uses climate changing science to keep mankind from war. The lead actors are both male and female. The lead actress, Barbara Berger (AKA Barbara Berjer) portrays a hard working newspaper reporter. Her strong character, Julie Weston leads the hunt for the villain all the way to the end of the film. Berger had a long career on Broadway and television (ironically including As the World Turns).
