|Life is hard on MacDonald farm in stony, windswept Nova Scotia - and harder for young Belinda, a deaf mute whose affliction has been confused with mental deficiency. Then the town's new doctor takes an interest in helping her break out of her silent prison. Jane Wyman won the Best Actress Academy Award for her sensitive portrayal of Belinda, capturing the girl's affecting isolation, awakening desire to learn and ultimate triumph. Directed by Jean Negulesco and co-starring Lew Ayres, Charles Bickford and Agnes Moorehead (all four Oscar nominees* for their fine work), Johnny Belinda (nominated for a total 11 Oscars including Best Picture) blends atmosphere, nuance and high drama into a heartbreaking classic. out of|

the Little Archer (8:35)
Image quality is right up to par with Warner's recent output of classic films to DVD... and this looks marvelous. Clean, wonderful contrast, good detail. The "Little Archer' short is a bit of a bland addition where the film certainly deserves a commentary, but overall I am thrilled by the transfer quality. the mono track sounded clear and audible. This DVD is a must own for film fans.
