William Gibson a Science Fiction Fans (gener 2023)

Ressenyes

A black-and-white film based on the true story of Helen Keller, who was both deaf and blind due to a serious illness in babyhood. She had become totally wild, prone to horrendous tantrums and increasingly dangerous to herself and others. So a young teacher was employed to try and bring some control to her life, and see if she could help Helen to communicate via felt hand signs.

Excellent acting, particularly by Patty Duke who played Helen. I was sorry it ended so abruptly, however - I'd like to have seen more of the story, as I know Helen Keller went on to do amazing things with her life.

We were also disappointed in the sound quality; we had to use switch on subtitles as we found we were missing so much of the conversation. But possibly that was a problem with our DVD, which came as a freebie with a relative's newspaper.

Previously a 1957 teleplay, then a legendary Broadway stage production that played from 1959 through '61, director Arthur Penn and playwright William Gibson collaborated once again to bring 'The Miracle Worker' to the big screen. Ann Bancroft and Patty Duke repeated their iconic stage performances as teacher Annie Sullivan and the young, blind and deaf-mute Helen Keller.

Summer stock fare, which is where I worked on it. I have no idea what it was about. Totally forgettable.

Phenomenal! So many interlocking themes. Water flowing underground, drawn out by a pump -- redemption as repayment from her brother -- "you can see 5000 years back with words" -- imitation versus meaning. Simply amazing. Brought me to tears. Heart-wrenching and exultant.
