An Early Frost
1985 | NBC Television
An Early Frost deals with the problems of an American family trying to cope with the news that their son is dying of AIDS. The Peabody Board found this to be an exceptionally well-done personal drama which depicted an important social problem in such a way as to involve the viewer almost continuously. Most noteworthy was producers Perry Lafferty and Arthur Sidel’s choice to avoid gratuitous scenes which capitalize on public and press panic and to concentrate instead on the impact of this deadly disease on family and personal relationship. The result was one of the most outstanding dramas presented on American television in 1985. To NBC Television, a Peabody Award for An Early Frost.
