Mandy Garland was born deaf and has been mute for all of her life. Her parents believe she is able to speak if she can only be taught and enroll her with a special teacher.
The fifth biggest film at the British box office in 1952.
Mandy was to be one of the lucky ones. There were at least plenty of people who loved her and wanted to look after her and shelter her from the outside world. She spent the next five years... being sheltered.
When Harry Garland, Mandy's father, precipitously leaves the flat where Mandy and Christine are staying, he departs empty handed. In the next scene, coming out of the taxi, he has the bag he had brought into the flat.
