Land of Promise
Land of Promise was produced for TV use Labor Day, 1960. It deals with American life and history of labor's role in both. Historical sequences highlight the struggle for national freedom, and economic and political development. Woven through all of this is the story of the labor movement - how workers fought for old-age pensions, better schools, safety regulations, workmen's compensation and other measures that benefit all Americans. The film was revised in 1962. Ralph Bellamy does the commentary.
