She had the baby and he was adopted presently living near the ocean in So California. He looks and is the size of his father Gary Cooper and was given up at birth. He ran for office not long ago but lost by miles. Roger is alive and his birth wasn't terminated.

Patricia Neal is a living legend and deserves the utmost respect from you paps. She is gracious and lovely to speak with. Old Hollywood at it's finest. Brangelina, with all their getup and hooha, and the rest of Hollywood's current crap will never match this kind of grace.

Patty Cake – Sequel to “Sunset Blvd.” Patty would make a great “Norma Desmond” in a modern updated version of this classic film, but who is going to play “Joe Gillis?”

And, she looks awesome for a woman who was in a coma for weeks and almost died from a brain tumor when surgery was not successful then as it is today. She's a walking miracle. THERE WAS NOT AN ABORTION, THE BABY SHE AND GARY COOPER WAS NOT TERMINATED, AND HE LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE GARY COOPER, same face,and height and interestingly much like his personality even though he was adopted and his own mother more than likely didn't see him. BUT THAT CHILD LIVES AND I KNOW EXACTLY WHERE AND HE LOOKS JUST LIKE HIS FAMOUS FATHER.

Great actress & one tough lady to go through what she had to & survive. She was married to the gentleman who wrote "Willy Wonka". Hang in there, Patricia!

I'm 43 years old and have always admired Patricia Neal. She was on Little House of the Prairie during a 2 episode arc and I remember her character was dying and she recited the most poignant line that I remember to this day. 'Remember me with smiles and laughter for that is that way I'll remember you all. If you can only remember me with sorrow and tears, then don't remember me at all.'

She was also the FIRST Ma Walton before Michael Learned took her place.
