Brittany Murphy, RIP

The actress, Brittany Murphy, has died at the age of 32. I knew absolutely nothing about her work, and noted her passing with little more than the brief pang of regret that I feel for anyone who dies so young. Robert Avrech, however, at Seraphic Secret, worked with her once, and has a touching tribute to this woman who starred in a Holocaust film, The Devil's Arithmetic. Well worth reading.

I didn't know of her work, either. I just figured she died due to complications of anorexia.

You never saw Clueless? You must!

Very funny in Clueless, and saw her in Uptown Girls - very moving.

I found that even if the film wasn't very good, you wanted to watch her. It's a shame she died so young.
