Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Poltergeist (1982)

Diane: You were saying about poltergeists. 
Dr. Lesh: Poltergeists are usually associated with an
individual. Hauntings seem to be connected with an area.
A house usually. 
Marty: Poltergeist disturbances are of a fairly short duration. 
Perhaps a couple of months. Hauntings can go on for years. 
Diane: Are you telling me that all of this could 
just suddenly end at any time? 
Dr. Lesh: Yes, it could. Unless it's a haunting. 
But hauntings don't usually revolve around living people. 
Diane: Then we don't have much time, Dr. Lesh, 
because my daughter is alive somewhere inside this house. 

Beatrice Straight, who won an Oscar for her minuscule role in Network in 1976, was born on this day in the year 1914. She's even better in Poltergeist, if you ask me, although she always gets overshadowed by the more colorful Tangina (played by the more colorful Zelda Rubenstein). We posted about our love for Dr. Lesh before right here.
