Summary This is a simple, honest, tremendously moving saga, brought to the screen with the help of such notables as Katherine Cornell, Martha Graham and Dwight D. Eisenhower. Helen Keller, playing her own role, surpassed even the greatest actress, as she evoked the personal drama of her unique and dramatic story of courage, faith, perseverance and hope. Perhaps nothing better illustrates the power and eloquence of this remarkable film than one passage, haltingly spoken by Miss Keller in her partially developed voice: “It is not blindness or deafness that brings me my darkest hours. It is the acute disappointment of not being able to speak normally. Longingly I feel how much more good I could have done if I had acquired normal speech. But out of this dark experience I understand more fully all human strivings, thwarted ambitions and the infinite capacity of hope.” Produced by Nancy Hamilton. Narrated by Katherine Cornell. Academy Award - Best Feature Documentary Golden Reel Award
