Berman Written and Directed by Guy Green. He walks her to the park each weekday so she can string beads under a tree, piecework she sells to Mr. Faber John Qualen. Selina knows only harsh treatment and sordid misery with Rose-Ann, but in the park she meets Gordon Ralfe Sidney Poitier , a lonely young man who likes her company.

A frail-looking girl with an expressive voice, she had an impressive stage career but was only seen in a few more noteworthy roles. She conveys the idea of blindness beyond a simply mechanical problem, or a case of limited perception, as in the excellent Wait Until Dark.
