I remember Brittany Murphy best in the movie Girl, Interrupted in which she played a girl institutionalized and shown to have rehabilitated. She had a pet cat with her and she was the object of much torment by a character played by Angelina Jolie. Murphy played this role excellently and touched my heart. She has won awards for her roles, most notably for her character of Luanne on "King of the Hill". Try to catch an airing of an episode and remember her genuine, heartfelt voice as Luane; the warmth that brings out so many great moments in this character.
