The full video version of Everett S. Allen’s 1976 Best Seller “A Wind To Shake The World – The Story of The 1938 Hurricane” produced and directed by M.L.Baron. This award winning classic takes you back in time to the year 1938 and the hurricane which took away “the age of innocence”. “The greens and commons of New England will never be the same. Picture postcard memories of the oldest part of The United States are gone with the wind and flood. The day of “the biggest wind” has just passed and a great part of most picturesque America, as old as the Pilgrims, has gone beyond recall or replacement” -AP, September 22, 1938. Everett S. Allen recalls his first day on the job with The New Bedford Standard-Times on Wednesday, September 21st, 1938. He was wondering what his first story would be…that day he found out. Dramatic footage and mesmerizing narration with carefully selected sound track make this documentary unforgettable.
