Remembering Patricia Neal
Monday, August 09, 2010
Patricia Neal had a way of mesmerizing people with her molasses-flecked-with-grit voice. She passed away at the age of 84.
She won a Best Actress Oscar for her performance in “Hud,” opposite Paul Newman, and a Tony for her Broadway debut in Lillian Hellman’s “Another Part of the Forest.” She’s also remembered for starring in “The Fountainhead,” “Breakfast at Tiffiany’s,” and “A Face in the Crowd.” She discussed her eventful life with Leonard Lopate on May 18, 1989, after having survived three strokes, and after learning to walk and talk again.
