Anne Bancroft won a richly deserved Best Actress Oscar for her performance as Annie Sullivan, the inspirational ‘miracle worker’ who brought Helen Keller (Oscar-winning Patty Duke) out of the darkness and into the world.

Blind, deaf and mute since infancy, Keller is considered a burden to her family until Sullivan arrives as a tutor determined to reach Helen and teach her to communicate.

The rigorous approach of Bonnie and Clyde director Arthur Penn creates a rare depiction of disability that eschews easy sentimentality in favour of searing, hard-won emotion.
