USA 1962
Dir Arthur Penn
With Patty Duke, Anne Bancroft, Victor Jory
Certificate PG

A marvellous adaptation of William Gibson’s play about the relationship between Helen Keller, left deaf-blind by childhood illness in 1880s Alabama, and the Irish governess hired by her parents who determines to teach the girl to speak. Sentimentality is sidestepped at every point in a film of raw emotional honesty; the two lead performances are almost violent in their authenticity and power.
