A Triumph of the Human Spirit! Patricia Neal was a great star - until a tragic illness struck her down. The doctors said she may never walk, talk or love again. It took all her husband's love to work a miracle! See more »
Twenty-two years after seeing this film, I suffered a stroke subsequent to brain surgery. after 3 1/2 years, even though my mobility is much improved, I still have paralysis in left hand and arm. Unfortunately Blue Cross Blue Shield only paid for rehabilitation for several months or I might have progressed more than I have. I am still hopeful for the 100% recovery which doctors told me I could "probably" expect back in 2003.
I have nothing but admiration for Patricia Neal & her fight for recovery. The progress I have made is the result of work and the support of loved ones and friends. Paralysis is baffling. Sometimes I feel like I'm grasping with my hand, I suppose in a phenomenon similar to an amputee who still feels the missing limb. Dale Hix
