Patricia Neal: 1926 – 2010. “Perhaps the most famous line spoken on screen by the actor Patricia Neal, who has died of lung cancer aged 84, was “Klaatu barada nikto!” in Robert Wise’s The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951). These incomprehensible words, uttered to a robot which carries her into a spaceship, save the world from destruction. Neal won her Oscar for a more down-to-earth performance, as the cynical, world-weary housekeeper Alma Brown in Martin Ritt’s contemporary western, Hud (1963). “It was a tough part to cast,” Ritt remarked. “This woman had to be believable as a housekeeper and still be sexy. It called for a special combination of warmth and toughness, while still being very feminine. Pat Neal was it.The Guardian.
