Neal won her Oscar for her role in 1963’s Hud, opposite Paul Newman, and was nominated for the Best Actress category a few years later in The Subject Was Roses. Her mainstream debut was in The Fountainhead in 1949, and later appeared opposite Michael Rennie in The Day The Earth Stood Still. Other film appearances include Breakfast At Tiffany’s, A Face In The CrowdAll Quiet On The Western Front (1979) and Operation Pacific.

Patricia Neal died at her home in Massachusetts. She was 84.

Normally detesting these kinds of bios, Rodney’s keen love of film more often outclasses his ability to write convincingly about them.

Never blessed with a body worthy of a porn star, nor being the heir to a wealthy industrialists fortune, nor suffering the tragedy of having his parents murdered outside a Gotham theater, Rodney is, contrary to popular opinion, neither Ron Jeremy, JD Rockefeller, or Batman.

As a serious appreciator of film since 1996, Rodney’s love affair with the medium has continued with his online blog, Fernby Films, a facility allowing him to communicate with fellow cineasts in their mutual love of all things movie.
