One of the more unfortunate tales out of Hollywood is the early death of Poltergiest (1982) star Dominique Dunne. By the age of 22 she had that feature film under her list of credits in addition to loads of TV shows and TV movies. In Poltergeist (1982) she had a nice flash of underwear scene as she storms outside to witness a tornado with other members of her family in the film. Her early end in real life came by the hands of her ex-boyfriend, who went to her house and had an argument with her on her porch in West Hollywood. By the end of the altercation, the boyfriend had strangled her and put her into a coma that she never woke up from. Five days later she was declared brain dead. This gorgeous and talented girl will now live on in the many roles she had in her less that quarter century of life.
