Beatrice Arthur, best known as Maude Findlay on "Maude" and as Dorothy Zbornak on the long-running "The Golden Girls," died today. She was 86. It's known that she was battling Cancer. It's always sad to report when any celebrity dies, but when it's someone as legendary as Bea Arthur it's even worse. I won't lie, I love the hell out of The Golden Girls. The show was hilarious and even the reruns you sometimes find on TV are still funny as ever.
Rest in Peace, Bea Arthur. Thanks for all the laughs.
This just reminded me of something. I was looking at a couple other sites and read mentions of this video and then remembered it. Man, I forgot that it even existed. I wonder if I can find this on DVD or something somewhere. Anyways, here's a shot of Bea Arthur when she appeared in the TV version of the Star Wars Holiday Special, circa '79. Look for her behind the bar!
