Rosemary's Baby is difficult to cite as an example, however minor, of a
film about disabled children. The line, "He has his father's eyes," associates
the newborn child with Satan. Note the final scene with its marvellous
parody of the Three Wise Men bearing gifts to the satanic messiah in the
year zero. Far from being "disabled" Rosemary's baby is going to become
strong and reverse two thousand years of Christian dominance.
Has anyone cited TOMMY? Not a good example. But it does involve a disabled
child? Also, Lon Chaney Sr. movies which might involve flashbacks to the
childhood state. The AFI Catalogs may also supply further evidence.
