Description
 
This is a region-free DVD+R without case or artwork.

This is a VHS transfer. This true-life TV movie stars Glenda Jackson as Oscar-winning actress Patricia Neal and Dirk Bogarde as her author husband Roald Dahl. In 1964, Neal is felled by a stroke, which endangers not only her life but the life of her unborn child. Both survive, but it looks as though Neal will never be able to speak coherently again. Dahl bullies, cajoles and caresses his wife into recovery; she rallies under this treatment and is finally able to resume her career and lead a normal life. The film does not touch upon the serious domestic problems which would lead to Neal and Dahl's later divorce, nor does it dwell on the "dark side" of the notoriously mercurial Mr. Dahl. Nonetheless, both Neal and Dahl felt that the book upon which Patricia Neal Story was based, (Barry Farrell's Pat and Ronald) was far too revelatory for their tastes. They severed their longtime friendship with author Farrell and never spoke to him again; nor did they have anything to say publicly about The Patricia Neal Story.

5 of 5 Good quality, fast service, friendly seller July 29, 2021
Reviewer: Karen S. from PRESCOTT, AZ United States  
I worked as an extra in this made-for-TV film back in 1981, and never saw the movie!  So I hunted on the Internet for it, and found it on this site.  The price was fair ($10 + $5 shipping). I received it in just a few days.  As stated, it was a VHS transfer to DVD, so I did not expect perfect quality.  Nor was there any artwork or case.  But it was definitely watchable, and I saw myself in many of the banquet scenes.  It was so cool.  I wrote the seller and he replied; very nice man. I recommend Movie Detective for rare and hard-to-find titles.
