Zelda Rubinstein, R. I. P.

Zelda Rubinstein, who played psychic in 'Poltergeist,' dies at 76 - "Zelda Rubinstein, the diminutive character actress with the childlike voice who was best known as the psychic called in to rid a suburban home of demonic forces in the 1982 horror movie 'Poltergeist,' has died. She was 76."

I hope people will also remember her for her work in 'Picket Fences'. Sadly, her character was killed off in one of those off-beat ways usually found in TV - she fell into her deep freeze and it shut behind her.

She was colorful and singular and really made 'Poltergeist' better than other movies of its type.

She did a good bit of TV work, I think.
