||Synopsis: On November 4, 1970 on The CBS Evening News, Walter Cronkite reported on a true, horrific story that was about to rock the country. A 13-year-old girl was discovered in the small Los Angeles suburb of Arcadia who was still in diapers, barely able to walk and unable to speak. Kept in severe isolation by her parents with virtually no human contact for more than 10 years, she was confined to her bedroom, tied to her potty-chair and left to fend for herself. As Cronkite noted, it was one of the most horrendous cases of child abuse ever to surface. Much like an animal, the girl spat, sniffed and clawed. She had none of the traits or characteristics of conventional human behavior, nor could she comprehend such modern societal conveniences as silverware or bathroom etiquette. Her emotional development was practically non-existent, and she could not speak. With this heartbreaking story, the world was being introduced to a fragile, beautiful teenager who seemed and behaved like an infant, or ... Written by Steven Zeller

Dear Sylvia Marciniak
Thank you for looking at our film "Mockingbird Don't Sing". I am the
I am intrigued by your comment that it was not accurate. In what
respect, pray tell? We spent two years researching this subject
and enlisted the service of Dr Susan Curtiss (named Sandra
Tannen in the film) who was, as you will know from your research,
present at all but the early stages of Genie/Katie's life starting a
few months after she arrived at Children's hospital. We interviewed
her for about 40 hours total and she was our primary source.
Susie Curtiss, now a linguistics professor at UCLA, signed off on
this script as being as accurate a representation as was possible,
given the constraints of having to make a drama out of the story.
That is to say, we felt that all the lawsuits which followed the child's
return to her mother belonged in another story.
I used many other sources, including "sealed" records from the
Los Angeles courthouses, Dr Rigler, Dr Jay Shurley, John Miner,
the child's onelime legal guardian, Dr Kay Natali and a host of
others who were actually personally acquainted with the child and
her situation for many years in the 1960s 70's and 80's.
I suspect that you have read Russ Rymer's book and New Yorker
articles -- documents much derided by the actual participants in
the true story because of their massive inaccuracies and because
his primary contact was the child's mother, Irene (now deceased
by the way). Have you read Dr Susan Curtiss' own book on the
subject, I wonder: `Genie - A Psycholinguistic Study of a
Modern-Day `Wild Child'
So you see, I simply can't let you get away with the broad
statement at the top of your comments "It's not accurate". You may
have studied this case in class, but I spent three solid years on
this killing myself to do justice to the story and to make it as
accurately and elegantly as possible, and -- my God -- to actually
manage to get a film made about such a risky and difficult
I am saddened that you chose only to respond to the verisimilitude
of the film. The names were changed for silly legal reasons
beyond my control, but I might have hoped for a more reflective set
of comments from a psychology student.
Now I'm sorry that I've yelled my head off at you -- you're probably a
perfectly decent person. You should understand that this is an
important movie for me and I don't respond well to uninformed
criticism. You are free to dislike the picture, of course, but don't tell
me "It's not accurate".
I do hope you will find time to reply and to forgive me for being
such a curmudgeon.
