  • SKU: 6683458
  • Release Date: 03/06/2001
  • Rating: NR
Arthur Penn's moving biopic of Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan, The Miracle Worker, comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.66:1. English, Spanish, and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. Spanish and French subtitles are accessible, and the English soundtrack is closed-captioned. Supplemental materials include the original theatrical trailer. This is a solid release from MGM/UA that will satisfy the film's fans, but considering the wealth of information about Keller, some historical extras would have improved this package.

      This is a brilliant film all around, any way you look at it: writing, acting, the characters it's based on, cinematography, etc. I'm unable to think of an area where the film falls short in any way.

      I forgot how good this sequel was. Patty Duke playing the teacher was a good change to it.
