Patricia Neal

Patricia Neal, who won an Academy Award (Oscar) for her performance in “Hud” (1963) was one of two Hollywood stars I’ve met in my life. Her daughter, Lucy, was in the same play writing class I was in at a private high school outside of Boston. One day Ms Neal came to visit her daughter and she attended our class. She critiqued our work (!). I vaguely remember that my play, they were all one acts, was a one woman show heavily influenced by the then popular “Dynasty” TV show. {Roll eyes}. Ms Neal was very nice to say that she thought my play was “very good”.  I just looked her up on Wikipedia and found out that Lucy later on became a screenwriter. Sadly, I did not.
