BoPaul Media adds “Miracle Worker” to MIPCOM slate
Following closely on the heels of its acquisition of George C. Scott’s “Mussolini: The Untold Story” mini-series, BoPaul Media Worldwide announces purchases of two other vintage television movies from the archives of the estate of famed producer Raymond Katz.
They are: “The Miracle Worker”, starring Patty Duke Astin as Annie Sullivan and Melissa Gilbert (“Little House on the Prairie”) as her pupil Helen Keller. Telecast on NBC, it won an Emmy Award for best movie of 1979. The original theatrical film starred Duke as Helen Keller, the blind, deaf-mute child whose world was as savage as it was pitiful; she won the Academy Award for that performance. This production’s teleplay was written by William Gibson and based on his classic Broadway play “The Miracle Worker”. Both the theatrical play and the two award-winning films have been shown with critical acclaim in virtually every country of the world.
Also “Miss America: Behind the Crown,” a look behind the Miss America crown of Carolyn Sapp, playing herself in the story of her abusive relationship with a professional football player. The subject matter is very much relevant to today’s epidemic of similar treatment of women by athletes and other celebrities. The 90-minute film was telecast originally in 1992 on NBC in the U.S.
