Patricia Neal: 1926-2010

From the L.A. Times: Patricia Neal dies at 84:
Neal, 84, died of lung cancer Sunday at her home in Edgartown, Mass., on Martha's Vineyard. But in the end, she told family members who had gathered around her the night before: "I've had a lovely time."

The former wife of "Willie Wonka" creator Roald Dahl, you might know her as a Tony-winning actress, an Oscar-winner for her role in Hud, or the sci-fi maven of The Day the Earth Stood Still. Oh, and some movie called The Fountainhead, I think?

Of course, I'll remember her as Dominique Francon; rest in peace.
