Farrah Fawcett

Sad news, the passing of Farrah Fawcett.  I saw every jiggly-episode of Charlie's Angels (yes, even after she left after only one season).  Her battle with cancer, like so many others, was courageous and sad, and the outcome was, unfortunately expected.
She left Charlie's Angels to pursue a career in movies, but that just did not work out.  Her return to television, especially her role as an abused wife in "The Burning Bed", showed her true talent as an actress.
RIP, Farrah.
And yes, I was one of those teenage boys that had "the poster".

Every kid had that poster. I did.

The Burning Bed was good. Try to track down the Made for TV movie where she played photographer Dorothea Lange. Also, she did a romantic comedy with Jeff Bridges and (a much younger) Drew Barrymore ca. 1989 that's pretty good but dammit if I can't remember the title. Too lazy to IMDB it, too.
