Patricia NEAL on InnerVIEWS with Ernie Manouse

From "The Fountainhead" to "The Day the Earth Stood Still," Patricia Neal showed early promise as an actress - but her body of work was quickly overshadowed by an affair with the married Gary Cooper, which resulted in a pregnancy, an abortion and a nervous breakdown. She eventually returned Hollywood - now married to children's author Roald Dahl, and revived her film career with starring roles in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and "HUD" with Paul Newman.
