The Broken Earth
- The subject meets Wikipedia's film criteria 1 and 3. It also qualifies for having been screened more than 50 hears after it was made. Frankly, the idea that a surviving film of this era with notable participants isn't worth including is outrageous. FloridaArmy (talk) 12:35, 2 December 2020 (UTC)

The Broken Earth is a 1939 American film written and directed by Roman Freulich. The 11-minite short film stars Clarence Muse as a sharecropper and widower who plows his farm and tries to care for a sick son, pleading and praying for divine intervention. The film includes a soundtrack of negro spirituals.
Freulich was a photographer who immigrated from Poland. He shot movie stills and glamous shots.
Muse owned a ranch that was used as a filmmaking location.
