--

Helen Keller is one of the most renowned personages of the 20th century, and yet most people only know her as that young girl, deaf and blind from infancy, who astounded the world by learning not only how to read and write but also to speak.

Few people, however, know very much else about Helen Keller.

The 1955 Academy Award® winning documentary, Unconquered, Helen Keller in Her Story, narrated by Katharine Cornell and directed by Nancy Hamilton, presents the adult Helen Keller, the internationally recognized and respected spokesperson and advocate for the disabled, and this movie also reveals Helen Keller as a whole person, one who partakes in the ordinary joys of life - entertaining guests, going shopping, enjoying flowers, and doing mundane chores - despite her afflictions.

In addition to enhanced new materials, this DVD, as with all Nobility Studios titles, uses the original film in order to provide the highest possible image quality.

The Nobility Studios original production, VISIONS in Silent Darkness, uses new research and goes further to show Helen Keller as not just acclaimed and capable but, rather, as an exceptional intelligence and a brilliant thinker in her own right - an exemplar for all people and all times.

I have been a huge fan of Helen Keller for over forty years and have never seen live footage of her, of her beloved teacher, Annie Sullivan, and her subsequent companion Polly Thompson. Although Helen was in her old age when this was filmed, there was plenty of information, photos, and footage with her to reveal her extraordinary life and accomplishments from even her younger years. This documentary also has the only surviving footage of Annie Sullivan's voice as she and Helen demonstrate how Helen learned to speak, albeit not normally. I loved seeing her move, how she read, and how she traveled the world and inspired countless people and especially those who, like her, were afflicted with blindness and/or deafness.

One thing that jumps out as obvious is that it is easy to see that she was coached to always maintain a serene and happy composure. She is nearly always smiling. I read that she was told from a very young age that when she was in public to remember that nobody would be attracted to an unhappy handicapped person. She obviously took this to heart because even at her home at Arcan Ridge she smiles as she reads, does dishes, fetches items for Polly, answers her mail, and even takes a walk along the special fence built just for her.

I highly recommend this documentary to anyone who loves and admires Helen as much as I do. This film was better than I had hoped it would be. Enjoy!

While this is an excellent movie depicting Helen Keller's amazing life, I am surprised that a movie about someone who championed for the rights of the disabled and was blind/deaf herself, would have NO captions. We use closed captioning all the time as even for hearing individuals, sometimes what is said, is not clear. I cannot believe this DVD was made without closed captions for the hearing-impaired. Other than that, an excellent and fascinating account of the life of Helen Keller.

My wife has had a lifelong admiration of Keller's life, times and strength. Many know of her struggle to learn after the sickness that caused her to be blind and deaf. A Broadway play and two movies have given the public a slight look into her life. The book goes beyond that and leaves one feeling blessed just to have read about her.
