The Miracle Worker coming from Eureka Classics in January

The Miracle Worker (1962)
Dir: Arthur Penn | Cast: Andrew Prine, Anne Bancroft, Inga Swenson, Victor Jory | Writers: William Gibson (based upon the stage play by), William Gibson (screenplay)

Eureka have announced a new Blu-ray edition of The Miracle Worker - Arthur Penn's biographical story about the life of Helen Keller - for release on 27th January 2020.

Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke are remarkable in The Miracle Worker, the Academy Award-winning story of Helen Keller. Ennobling and uplifting, this inspirational story of courage and hope is one of the finest works of art in the history of motion pictures. 

Locked in a frightening, lonely world of silence and darkness since infancy, 7-year old Helen Keller (Duke) has never seen the sky, heard her mother’s voice or expressed her innermost feelings. Then Anne Sullivan (Bancroft), a 20-year old teacher from Boston arrives. Having just recently regained her own sight, the no-nonsense Anne reaches out to Helen through the power of touch—the only tool they have in common—and leads her bold pupil on a miraculous journey from fear and isolation to happiness and light.

Features:

  • Brand new audio essay by Amy Simmons
  • Theatrical trailer
  • A collector’s booklet featuring new essays by film critic and writer Alexandra Heller-Nicholas, and film critic and author Richard Combs.
