Farrah Fawcett...a beautiful person.

Post by Tall Grass » Fri Jun 26, 2009 7:15 pm

I was quite touched by the dedication that Ryan O'Neal displayed during her difficult last months, and the depth of love and respect her former"Angel" friends had for her.

This is for you BigD53...

Geeze - I spent time on a reply on the other thread only to be locked out. I guess I don't need to repeat it. Hopefully she saw it.

She was, no, she is, a beautiful woman who was an inspiration in life and an inspiration in dying. I miss her

If you were a young male in the late 70's, you remember this poster
Thank you for showing that famous poster...so very beautiful....
You didn't have to be a young male in the late 70s to remember that poster.....unless you mean any one younger than 90 as being young. I certainly remember it. Sigh...................

I didn't even know she had cancer for years till I heard the news that she died.

I don't really know any of her work. Charlie's Angles was a bit before my time. I wasn't watching that as a little kid in the late 70s.

It was a very good show.

She was in one of my favorite shows from the 70s . . . Logan's Run. Will be missed, but at least my memory of her will always be of her vibrant radiant self. Thank you Farrah.

The lesson from Farrah and Michael is that we all age and we all expire-eventually. Life is short, so enjoy those moments doing the things that make you happy and share your thoughts about everything with family and friends before it's too late to do so.

Farrah Fawcett

I remember watching Charlie's Angels and just about every woman wanted the Farrah Fawcett Haircut/style. She was so beautiful. I also remember this poster being in the huge movie, "Saturday Night Fever." That movie was only made a few years later and this image of her was already so iconic as to be placed prominently in "Tony Manera's" bedroom.

Agreed, Kathleen. Although she was reportedly more proud of her work in the Burning Bed where she actually proved herself as a dramatic actress, rather than playing a stereotype.

As a professional woman, the poster doesn't bother me in the least, although I do understand and respect why other women may find it offensive. It was a part of many our young adulthoods; it was the 70s.

She was a beautiful woman who appeared to fight her cancer courageously, and died with dignity and grace.

RIP

Best to you.

Grandma,

Agreed. Yes, of course Farrah Fawcett would most likely want to be remembered for her excellent and intense performance in, "The Burning Bed," and for her courageous battle with cancer.

I didn't mean to offend anyone by including her image here, but being the title of this conversation was about her beauty, I wanted everyone who might not have been born yet, to see this poster. As you know, at the time-(circa 1976?) this poster was a HUGE phenonomen. I mean it was everywhere!

Charlie's Angels was the springboard that seemed to launch her career, without which she might not have been offered the chance to star in, "The Burning Bed," and other roles that had a message.
Best wishes, | Kathleen

That poster was everywhere. It seemed like I saw it in every older cousin's house and every friends house if he had an older brother. I probably stared at for hours. Farrah was incredibly naturally beautiful.
