PostSubject: Melissa Gilbert in The Miracle Worker   Mon Feb 24, 2014 6:56 pm

I just finished watching a 1979 version of The Miracle Worker, starring Melissa Gilbert as Helen Keller and Patty Duke as Annie Sullivan. I had seen two other versions of this film, including the original where Patty Duke was Helen, but this version with Melissa Gilbert was good. Melissa was great as Helen, and it was interesting to see her portray a character that was so different from Laura Ingalls Wilder, who I am used to seeing her portray on television. I'm wondering if anyone else has seen this version of The Miracle Worker? If not, I recommend it!

I saw it years ago, but it's been a long time.

Yep, I remember seeing this originally and thinking how wonderful Melissa was in this. Both she and Patty Duke played Helen well...hard to pick a favorite between those two. And if you've seen the re-make with Haley something (sorry, can't remember her name but I think she was a Disney actress for awhile) it gives you a whole other appreciation for wonderful and gifted child actors like Melissa and Patty.
