If John Singer could, he’d tell you about his inner world of beauty and dignity. But the card he holds must speak for him. “I am a deaf-mute. I read lips and understand what is said to me. Please do not shout.” In the performance that earned him an Oscar® nomination and New York Film Critics Award as 1968’s Best Actor, future Academy Award® winner* Alan Arkin is Singer in this film of Carson McCullers’ acclaimed first novel. When he moves to a sleepy Southern town to be near his hospitalized friend (Chuck McCann), a brain-damaged man-child, Singer’s silent kindness draws to him others broken in body and spirit. Playing some of those others in a prime ensemble are Cicely Tyson, Percy Rodriguez, Stacy Keach and fellow Oscar® nominee* Sondra Locke.
