has died. I am so sorry. She was 84 and had lung cancer. I admired her a lot as an actress. She is seen here in a still from Breakfast at Tiffany's, with George Peppard and some dumb chick with an eating disorder who couldn't act but who definitely got the best hat from wardrobe that day. Patricia Neal had three strokes in 1965 while pregnant and married to Roald Dahl. He, the histories tell us, "directed her recovery" and she learned to walk and talk again. Hmmm. Was he a doctor? I think we know what is meant here. Oh and he promptly shagged her best friend and they divorced. I hope her later years were happy. I REALLY hope so. Goodbye Patricia and thank you especially for The Fountainhead (never mind the politics).
