Tribute: Farrah Fawcett

posted by Nell Minow

We mourn the loss of the beautiful and talented Farrah Fawcett, who died this morning after a long bout with cancer. She came to attention as the athletic Jill on “Charlie’s Angels.” Her dazzling smile and girl-you-wish-was-next door look quickly led to the poster that became a twelve million-selling sensation. Her departure from the show after the first year was rancorous, but she proved herself to be a gifted actress, with outstanding work in “The Burning Bed,” “Extremities,” “See You in the Morning,” and “The Apostle.” She married Ryan O’Neal last week, after an on-and-off relationship that spanned decades. She will be fondly remembered and she will be missed.

    I can’t say I was unprepared for this moment, but it still hit me like a punch in the gut.
    I was 15 when Charlie’s Angels came out and I already had The Poster. (My dad eagerly bought one each for my brother and me.) I watched the show, I clipped her pictures out of magazines, read books about her, I devoured everything Farrah. She was my Marilyn Monroe. These photos remind me how beautiful she was inside AND out!

    I was not a “Charlie’s Angels” fan, but of course anyone who grew up in the 70′s remembers Farrah. I first remember her from the “Ultrabright” toothpaste commercials.
    “Mother had a feeling, I might be too appealing, so mother never told me about Ultrabright! Mother thought that all the whitening would make me too exciting, so mother never told me about Ultrabright.”
    I’ll be on vacation for the next week or so. Happy movie-watching!
