1) She was married to Roald Dahl? I had no idea.

2) She had a stroke before 'Hud'? I would never have guessed, but now I've gotta watch it again and see if there are any signs. Wow.

My mom always made a big deal about how Ms. Neal had lost her ability to speak, but came back to continue being an actress. Here's a bit of her bio:

A leading lady of American plays and film, Neal studied drama in college and worked as a model before debuting on Broadway in The Voice of the Turtle (1946). Her performance in the play Another Part of the Forest got the attention of Hollywood, and she made her screen debut in the light farce "John Loves Mary" (1949); that same year she was impressive in "The Fountainhead" opposite "Gary Cooper", whom she later said was the great love of her life. After marrying British writer "Roald Dahl" in 1953 she disappeared from the screen for several years, returning in 1957's "A Face in the Crowd", after which she was more selective in choosing her film roles. For her performance in "Hud" (1963) she won the "Best Actress" Oscar. In 1965 she suffered a massive series of strokes that left her confined to a wheelchair, semi-paralyzed and nearly unable to speak; she made a remarkable recovery over several years, returning to the screen inThe Subject Was Roses (1968), for which she received another "Best Actress" Oscar nomination. Also in 1968, she was presented by President Johnson with the "Heart of the Year" Award. Neal underwent two other tragedies in her life: as a baby, one of her children was hit by a cab and underwent eight brain operations, and another died of measles at age 13. Later in life, after divorcing Dahl, she underwent a much-publicized conversion to "Born Again" Christianity and published an autobiography, As I Am.
