Zelda Rubinstein Dies at 76

January 28, 2010

Zelda Rubinstein, the diminutive, child-voiced actress who was somehow able to upstage even the great Craig T. Nelson, died yesterday. The just-over-four-foot actress had a heart attack two months ago and had been hospitalized until her death. In the '80s, she nobly campaigned for both AIDS awareness and the fair treatment of little people.

As of writing this, Wikipedia has still not decided if Rubinstein's death should be considered part of the Poltergeist curse or if a small woman dying of heart attack complications at 76-years-old might just be a regular old person death.
