Quotes

Captain Keller: Miss Sullivan, I've brought you your first month's salary. You've done quite a job. You've taken a wild thing and given us back a child.
Anne Sullivan: I taught Helen one thing. 'No.' Don't do this, don't do that. I wanted to teach her 'yes'.

I love this movie
6 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when i was only 10 years old i was in the fifth grade i moved to Columbus Indiana during the middle of the school year and i went to Smith Elementry and my class watched a movie called "The Miracle Worker" and when i saw it i said to myself it would have to have been one of the greatest movies i had ever seen and someday i hope to see it again. I would also wish to meet Hallie Kate Eisenberg because she is now and will forever be one of my most favorite actresses there will ever be. Hope to meet you Hallie!

Best wishes to all,

Allison J. McTarsney
