SYNOPSIS

Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke are remarkable in The Miracle Worker, the Oscar®-winning story of Helen Keller. Ennobling and uplifting, this inspirational story of courage and hope is one of the finest works of art in the history of motion pictures.

Locked in a frightening, lonely world of silence and darkness since infancy, 7-year old Helen Keller (Duke) has never seen the sky, heard her mother’s voice or expressed her innermost feelings. Then Annie Sullivan (Bancroft), a 20-year old teacher from Boston arrives. Having just recently regained her own sight, the no-nonsense Annie reaches out to Helen through the power of touch—the only tool they have in common—and leads her bold pupil on a miraculous journey from fear and isolation to happiness and light.

Eureka Classics is proud to present Arthur Penn’s The Miracle Worker in its UK debut on Blu-ray.
