Zelda Rubinstein - 1933-2010

Today we mourn the passing of Poltergeist and Picket Fences star Zelda Rubinstein. Rubinstein appeared in all three Poltergeist films in her role of Tangina Barrons, the original film gaining her a Saturn Award in 1982. Her many other film appearances include Sixteen Candles, Little Witches, Southland Tales and National Lampoons Last Resort. Her TV appearances were limited to mainly guest roles in various shows, however, it was her recurring role as Ginny in Picket Fences, and her narrative work on Scariest Places on Earth, for which is famously remembered.

Rubinstein died this morning of complications arising from previous illness involving lung and kidney failure. She was 76.
