Tonight on “American Experience” gives Penn Station.
Million Dollar Movie
the rise and fall of penn station
Grrr... that's all I can say.
The piece kind of glossed over Alexander Cassatt's visit to his sister in Paris via New York that was the impetus to connect the Pennsylvania RR to Manhattan. The sister was refereed to only as Alexander's younger sister Mary who was building a reputation as an impressionist in Paris. Of course they were referring to the great Mary Cassatt. You think they might have shown a painting or two.
It's almost like the producers didn't want the viewer to make the connection. Throughout the documentary the narrator keeps referring to Alexander Cassatt by his sir name only, Cassatt this and Cassatt that,. But, when they get to his sister, they say Alexander's younger sister Mary. Not, Cassatt's younger sister Mary or Alaxander's younger sister Mary Cassatt. I just found that a little strange. Like they didn't want to distract us with arguably the more famous of the two Cassatts.
