NotesB/W. Rich woman helps out blind, deaf girl and creates charity in her name. Utterly ghastly not just to the disabled but to the Irish and everyone else. Some important detail which may be interesting historically. Heavily patronising. You can't make films like this with actors who can't act. Substitute Bette Davis for Joan Crawford and an actor who was really blind then we'd have a starting point. .
