Picks and Pans Review: The Patricia Neal Story

UPDATED 12/07/1981 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 12/07/1981 at 01:00 AM EST

CBS (9-11 p.m. ET)

Glenda Jackson is marvelous in this riveting account of the Oscar-winning actress's recovery from the 1965 strokes (she was pregnant at the time) that left her paralyzed and unable to speak. Dirk Bogarde is superb as her author husband, Roald Dahl, who badgered her with his own therapy system into a remarkable two-year rehabilitation and an eventual return to acting.
