Helen Keller, portrayed by Patty Duke, was struck blind and deaf as a baby after an elevated fever. Her teacher, Annie Sullivan (Anne Bancroft) removed Helen from her overprotective parents and taught her sign language, enabling Helen to communicate with the world.
Both actresses won Academy Awards for their performances.
