Arthur Penn's moving biopic of Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan, The Miracle Worker, comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.66:1. English, Spanish, and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. Spanish and French subtitles are accessible, and the English soundtrack is closed-captioned. Supplemental materials include the original theatrical trailer. This is a solid release from MGM/UA that will satisfy the film's fans, but considering the wealth of information about Keller, some historical extras would have improved this package.
