An organizer of a screening of "The Miracle Worker" in Omaha says one of the movie's stars — Oscar-winning actress Patty Duke — left the event because of stomach pain.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that the 67-year-old Duke was taken by a private vehicle Friday evening to the Nebraska Medical Center after complaining of stomach pain.

Organizer Bruce Crawford says Duke's medical condition was not serious, but that an Omaha doctor who had been running tests on Duke asked her to come in for more tests Friday night after she reported the pain.

Before seeking medical attention, Duke delivered a speech at Omaha's Joslyn Art Museum, where "The Miracle Worker" was shown. The movie tells the story of tutor Anne Sullivan's efforts to help a young Helen Keller.
