Patty Duke and Anne Bancroft recreate their acclaimed Broadway performances as the blind, deaf and mute Helen Keller and the stubborn Irish governess who helps her overcome her disabilities. Unable to see or hear, seven-year-old Helen is completely cut off from her family, unable to communicate with anyone. It seems that there is no hope for her, but when the young, dedicated teacher Annie Sullivan arrives, she engages the wild and angry Helen in a combative relationship, trying to overcome her isolation by teaching her a touch-based system of sign language. Bancroft and Duke both won Oscars for their roles.
