NotesB/W, Silent When his son is accused of a murder a blind cobbler knows who the real killer is because of his super human hearing. The cobbler presents himself as the bait knowing the murderer will want to silence him. The observation that visually impaired people have superior hearing to seeing people is continued up to the present day in Contact (1997). The reality is that people who are born blind sometimes have a hearing impairment as well.
