While there is nothing fancy about this Academy Award 1955 documentary, HELEN KELLER IN HER STORY is a fascinating opportunity to both hear and see Helen Keller and her remarkable teacher, Anne Sullivan. Using newsreel footage; scenes from a 1919 silent film, DELIVERANCE (that both appeared in); and newly recorded footage, this documentary will give the viewer a rare opportunity to better understand the achievements of two very remarkable women. This is the perfect companion to the 1962 feature film, THE MIRACLE WORKER with Patty Duke and Anne Bancroft. These two films, along with Helen Keller's own book, THE STORY OF MY LIFE, will give you a marvelous insight into one of the most inspiring true stories ever recorded. HELEN KELLER IN HER STORY also give you a chance to walk with Helen Keller at her own home and meet some of the world famous people that she influenced. A VERY VALUABLE RECORD!
A biography of Helen Keller, it traces her life from her birth to her mid seventies - when this documentary was made. As a small child, she was left totally blind and deaf by an illness. For years she was cut off from the rest of the world, until Ann Sullivan taught her to read braille, read lips and talk. This film shows excerpts from the silent documentary: "Deliverance" in which she starred. Also contains the only newsreel footage of Ann Sullivan. Narrated by Katherine Cornell.
