Still image from The Miracle Worker

Helen Keller's loss of vision and hearing in infancy made comprehension of the outside world next to impossible-or so it seemed. When teacher Anne Sullivan agreed to work with Keller, that world opened up, and they both learned essential life-altering lessons. Teaching the values of patience, tolerance, and compassion, together they made the name Helen Keller synonymous with the education of the deaf and blind. An icon while living and a legend decades after she passed away, Helen Keller accomplished the impossible and inspired the world. Stars Melissa Gilbert as Helen Keller and Patty Duke in the Emmy-winning performance as Anne Sullivan. Based on the play of the same name by William Gibson. Made for TV. Note: Content on the DVD other than the film itself is not captioned or described.
