With her commanding presence, legendary actress Patricia Neal (1926-2010) anchored such classic movies as The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), A Face in the Crowd (1957), and Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) . She is perhaps most well known for her crowning acting achievement: her performance as Alma in Hud (1963), which earned her the Academy Award for Best Actress. Patricia Neal: An Unquiet Life is the first critical biography detailing the actress's impressive film career. Author Stephen Michael Shearer's has conducted numerous interviews with Neal, her colleagues, and her friends. The result is an honest and comprehensive portrait of an accomplished woman who has lived her life with determination and bravado.
