Patricia Neal was one of the most revered and well-respected actresses of stage, film and television. Appearing in such classic films as The Fountainhead, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, The Day the Earth Stood Still, A Face in the Crowd and Hud, she also had as rewarding and productive career in theatre and the early decades of television. The great romance of her life was Gary Cooper, who was married to another woman and she had a complicated and tempestuous marriage to noted children’s book author Roald Dahl. Her personal life was anything but calm and she had to overcome a number of personal tragedies to keep her self acting. Tonight, Inquiry welcomes back actor and writer STEPHEN MICHAEL SHEARER to talk about his intimate and magnificent biography of this great actress: PATRICIA NEAL: AN UNQUIET LIFE.
