    Amphibian Man

    Amphibian Man (Russian: Человек-амфибия, translit. Chelovek-amfibiya) is a 1962 Soviet science fiction romance film starring Vladimir Korenev and Directed by Vladimir Chebotaryov and Gennadi Kazansky.
    It is an almost fable-like story based upon the eponymous novel by Alexander Beliaev. It focuses on a boy named Ichtyandr who was surgically altered to survive under the sea. Unlike traditional science fiction movies of the time the film focuses much more on the concept of love won and lost. It was given the name of Tarzan des Mers before the estate of Edgar Rice Burroughs took exception.[1]
    The film was the leader of Soviet distribution in 1962 (65.5 million viewers). It is little-known in the West, but has become a cult classic.

    The story is set in a seaside port, largely among a community of pearl fishers. The protagonist is the son of a doctor/scientist who was sometime in the past forced to save his son's life by implanting him with gills. Thus he is able to live under water, but must keep his secret from the world. The conflict arises from his falling in love with a pearl-fisher's beautiful daughter. His secret is discovered and the girl's stern father attempts to exploit Ichtyandr for his ability. Due to being kept caged under water, he loses the ability to live in the open air, and must now permanently live in the sea. Although set free, the lovers are permanently parted from each other.
    Although ostensibly a lost-love-tragedy like Romeo and Juliet, the film has a significant focus on greed and commercial exploitation (of the pearl-greedy fishermen), possibly under the influence of Socialist Realism.

    THIS FILM WAS SCREENED AT THE BALAR ARANGAM (Later remodelled and christened as Kalaivanar Arangam, now demolished) at Chennai, as a children's film and ticket rate was 6 paise for children and 12 paise for adults. I was fortunate to see the movie at 6 paise since I was a school boy and after almost 50 years I am now seeing this film as a clip along with you.

    1962 contd...

    The Miracle Worker

    இந்தப் படத்தில் ஒரு சுவாரஸ்யமான தகவல் உள்ளது. பராசக்தி படத்தில் நடிகர் திலகத்தை நடிக்க வைக்க எப்படி பெருமாள் முதலியார் தீர்மானமாக இருந்தாரோ, அதே போல் இத்திரைப்படத்தில் Anne Bancroft அவர்களை நடிக்க வைக்க இயக்குநர் ஆர்தர் பென் அவர்கள் மிகவும் தீர்மானமாக இருந்தார். தயாரிப்பாளர்கள் எலிசபெத் டைலரைப் போடுவதாக இருந்தால் ஐந்து மில்லியன் டாலர் தருவதாகவும், ஆன் அவர்களைப் போட வேண்டுமென்றால் 500000 டாலர் மட்டுமே தருவதாகவும் கூறி விட்டனர். இயக்குநர் அவர்கள் பிடிவாதமாக ஆன் அவர்களையே நடிக்க வைத்தார்.

    இத்திரைப்படம் ஹெலன் கெல்லர் அவர்களின் சரிதையை அடிப்படையாகக் கொண்டது.

    இத்திரைப்படத்தின் கதாநாயகி பார்வையற்றவர் மற்றும் காது கேளாதவர் ஆவார்.

    இந்த படத்திற்காக ஆன் அவர்கள் சிறந்த நடிகை பரிசு பெற்றார் என்பது குறிப்பிடத் தக்கது.

    வைகி இணைய தளத்திலிருந்து இப்படத்தைப் பற்றிய தகவல்கள்

    The Miracle Worker is a 1962 American biographical film directed by Arthur Penn. The screenplay by William Gibson is based on his 1959 play of the same title, which originated as a 1957 broadcast of the television anthology series Playhouse 90. Gibson's original source material was The Story of My Life, the 1902 autobiography of Helen Keller.
    Plot synopsis

    Young Helen Keller, blind and deaf since infancy due to a severe case of scarlet fever, is frustrated by her inability to communicate and subject to frequent violent and uncontrollable outbursts as a result. Unable to deal with her, her terrified and helpless parents contact the Perkins School for the Blind for assistance. In response they send Anne Sullivan, a former student, to the Keller home to tutor her. What ensues is a battle of wills as Anne breaks down Helen's walls of silence and darkness through persistence, love, and sheer stubbornness.

    Directed by Arthur Penn
    Produced by Fred Coe
    Written by William Gibson
    Starring Anne Bancroft
    Patty Duke
    Music by Laurence Rosenthal
    Cinematography Ernesto Caparrós
    Editing by Aram Avakian
    Distributed by United Artists
    Release date(s) July 28, 1962
    Running time 106 minutes
    Country United States
    Language English

    Production notes

    Despite the fact Anne Bancroft had won the Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Play for her performance in the Broadway production, United Artists executives wanted a bigger name cast as Anne Sullivan in the film adaptation. They offered to budget the film at $5 million if Elizabeth Taylor was cast but only $500,000 if director Arthur Penn insisted on using Bancroft. Penn, who had directed the stage production, remained loyal to his star. The move paid off, and Bancroft won an Oscar for her role in the film.
    Also despite the fact that Patty Duke had played Helen Keller in the play, she almost didn't get the part. The reason was that Duke, 15 years old at the time, was too old to portray a seven-year old girl, but after Bancroft was cast as Anne, Duke was chosen to play Helen in the movie.
    For the dining room battle scene, in which Anne tries to teach Helen proper table manners, both Bancroft and Patty Duke wore padding beneath their costumes to prevent serious bruising during the intense physical skirmish. The nine-minute sequence required three cameras and took five days to film.[1]
    The film was shot at Big Sky Ranch in Simi Valley, California and Middletown, New Jersey.
    It was remade twice for television, in 1979 with Patty Duke as Anne and Melissa Gilbert as Helen and in 2000 with Alison Elliott and Hallie Kate Eisenberg in the lead roles.
    The film ranked #15 on AFI's 100 Years...100 Cheers: America's Most Inspiring Movies.

    Academy Award for Best Actress (Anne Bancroft, winner)
    Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress (Patty Duke, winner)
    Academy Award for Best Director (Arthur Penn, nominee)
    Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay (William Gibson, nominee)
    Academy Award for Best Black-and-White Costume Design (Ruth Morley, nominee)
