Mandy

Available on BFI Player Classics
The Garlands sense there is something amiss about their daughter Mandy (Mandy Miller) and they eventually discover the issue – she lacks the sense of hearing. Harry (Terence Morgan) and Christine (Phyllis Calvert) seek help and enroll their daughter in a school for the deaf overseen by a helpful headmaster, Dick Searle (Jack Hawkins). As parents, Harry and Christine have difficulty coping with Mandy’s disability and the stresses surrounding her special needs place a great strain on their marriage. Unable to talk it out, Christine turns her attention to teaching her mute daughter to talk.
