Critic Reviews of "The Miracle Worker"VarietyOctober 18, 2008
Where the picture really excels, outside of its inherent story values, is in the realm of photographic technique.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
It's a stunningly impressive piece of work, typically (for Penn) deriving much of its power from the performances.Chicago ReaderJanuary 01, 2000
Anne Bancroft is superb as Annie Sullivan, the teacher who finally reached into Helen Keller's darkness, and Patty Duke is chillingly real as the young Helen.CinePassionMay 25, 2015

Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke give intense, powerful Oscar-winning performances in Arthur Penn's successful screen version of the Helen Keller story, based on William Gibson's play.Decent Films GuideOctober 17, 2005
Beautiful black-and-white cinematography, startling performances, and harrowing physicality… the cathartic final scene is nothing short of transcendent.Filmcritic.comAugust 14, 2004
Notable not just for its earnestness and two outstanding performances (both won Oscars) -- it's also got one of the longest catfights in cinema history.Apollo GuideMarch 16, 2004
Portrays a literal war for a girl's soul, making that war so ugly that it's impossibly beautiful.Nick's Flick PicksAugust 16, 2003
Potentially soft material is handled with just the right severity; marvelously acted.
