FROM THE HALLMARK HALL OF FAME VAULTS: What the Deaf Man Heard


This 1997 classic, WHAT THE DEAF MAN HEARD, centers on Sammy (MATTHEW effin MODINE) as a man who people think is deaf...BUT ISN'T! In 1945, as a young boy (played in flashback by FRANKIE MUNIZ), Sammy arrives in a small Georgia town on a bus from which his Mother (BERNADETTE PETERS) was abducted and murdered. Alone, he sits quietly and everyone becomes convinced that he was deaf and mute. Deciding that silence offered some power and protection, the boy decides to remain mute and just listens to all that is being said around him by people who thinks that he cannot hear. The all-star cast also includes HHoF fav JAMES EARL JONES, TOM SKERRITT, CLAIRE BLOOM, JUDITH IVEY, and JERRY O'CONNELL AS A PREACHER!
