Here is an episode on You Tube of The Loretta Young Show, this episode is called "Nobody's Boy," and it is about a club for boys who do not have anyone and so they help each other.

I was thinking about writing a movie about a club for orphans, where they all help each other.

I met one foster youth who came out of the system without getting adopted, and the poor kid was 18 with a pregnant girlfriend, they lived in an old camper, and he was unemployed, and the poor kid did not even know who Abraham Lincoln was. His big break came when one of his friends from the system got a job managing a movie theater, and his friend hired him to work there. It was good that his friend helped him. There needs to be a club of boys helping each other.

Salute,

Tony V.

 Babylon Berlin now available on Netflix.  German production, era Berlin 1929, fraught times, intriguing complex plot,  good characters,  superb sets & cinematography.  Worth a look.  Subtitles.

The Night Of - excellent.  A story well-told (so far - 3 episodes in) that doesn't hurl social messages at you, and yet illuminates.  Barton Fi- er, John Turturro - is aces as a bottom feeder lawyer who stumbles way above his skill level into representing a murder suspect whose case seems open-and-shut and yet isn't.  Ditto Riz Ahmed as a young Pakistani-American in a heap of trouble, and Peyman Moaadi as his father.
