Bea Arthur, RIP

Bea Arthur, the brilliant comic actor who had a lengthy and magnificent theatre career before taking on the role of Maude on All in the Family and her eponymous spinoff, and later played Dorthy Zbornak on The Golden Girls, died today of cancer at the age of 86.

She was one of the finest. Nobody glared better than Bea Arthur, whether the target was Archie Bunker or Sophia Petrillo. And, of course, she was one of the few high points of the otherwise dismal Star Wars Holiday Special. (Funny how none of her obits have mentioned that....)
