Patricia Neal Has Died

Sad news.  Oscar-winning Patricia Neal has died.  She acted in a number of films, but stands out in Hud, co-starring with Paul Newman.  Hud is one of the great films, and one of Eyewear's favourites.  Neal was married to the writer Roald Dahl, and divorced him finally after a marital betrayal on his part.  She had important roles in The Fountainhead and The Day The Earth Stood Still, and a classic episode of The Waltons.  She suffered a stroke in her late 30s and overcame disability to act again.  She will be missed.  She had a rare quality.
