While the National Archives might be able to help you, have you contacted any of the persons or organizations involved in creating the film? Some of them are still around and you might be able to find contact information for them or their agents online.
Also, the information I found at AFI states that end credits say “Title Sequence Photographs by Lewis Hine, Henry Hamilton Bennett, Frances Benjamin Johnston, Chansonetta Emmons, William Notman, Edie Baskin"; and "Courtesy of Library of Congress, Chicago Historical Society, New York Public Library, International Museum of Photography – George Eastman House, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Walter Rosenblum, Ewing Galloway, Notman Photographic Archives – McCord Museum, H.H. Bennett Studios, Culver Pictures, Photoworld, Inc., FPG, Inc.”
You might want to contact the listed institutions if you have not already.
Thanks for the reply J. Andrew! I have already contacted several of the institutions and the creator of the title sequence without any luck. This is my second stage of inquiries. I'm widening the circle.

Dear Mr. Kolnes,
The National Archives has a collection of Lewis Hine photographs in Record Group 102 (Children's Bureau).
Here is a link to the collection: National Child Labor Committee Photographs Taken by Lewis Hine, ca. 1912
You may also wish to contact the Still Pictures unit at the National Archives. Its email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research, and thank you for using History Hub!
