Kitty Winn enjoyed a brief but fruitful acting career during one of cinema's most inspired decades, the 1970s. Jerry Schatzberg's intense 1971 drug drama "The Panic in Needle Park" marked her big screen debut, playing a heroin addict opposite a still-green Al Pacino. Winn won Best Actress at the 1971 Cannes Film Festival, and "Premiere" magazine named her harrowing turn as 76th among the 100 Greatest Performances of All Time in 2006. In 1973, she landed a supporting role in "The Exorcist," a box office smash which is widely considered to be the scariest movie of all time. In the wake of the film's huge financial and critical success, Winn reprised her role as Sharon Spencer in the inevitable sequel, "Exorcist II: The Heretic." "Mirrors," a horror flick that cast her as a newlywed cursed by a voodoo priestess, proved to be Winn's final film role. Winn's other works included "Peeper," a period crime comedy starring Michael Caine as a clueless PI, and "They Might Be Giants" with Oscar-winner George C. Scott. "Giants" starred Scott as a deluded widower who casts himself as Sherlock Holmes in a mystery of his own invention. Winn quit the business in 1984 in order to raise a family.
