ORPHAN TRAIN -Laurence Rosenthal
Promo score from this three-hour dramatization of a little publicized episode in American history. Dedicated social worker Jill Eikenberry organizes a train trip for a group of slum orphans in 1894, taking them from New York City to the Midwest in search of new families and new lives. This fictionalized account covers the first of hundreds of orphan trains sponsored by what was to evolve as the Children’s Aid Society of New York. Production designer Jan Scott and set decorator Bill Harp received Emmy Award nominations for their artistry. All thanks to the original uploader.
