Rest in peace Ferrah!

She really was an angel! Born the same year my late brother was 1947 she was a beautiful star! Cancer what a horrible killer!

I will make a donation in her name to fight cancer.

My favorite works of hers was Extremities
In a “riveting performance” (The Hollywood Reporter) that stunned critics and audiences alike, Farrah Fawcett is the heart and soul of this “edge-of-your-seat suspense drama” (The Film Journal) about a woman who turns the tables on a would-be rapist. Nominated* for a Golden Globe, Fawcett “is genuine, and heroic here” (Los Angeles Times) and her “unadorned artistry singes” (Time)! After narrowly escaping an attempted rape, Marjorie (Fawcett) is haunted by the fact that her attacker (James Russo) knows where she lives. But when he appears on her doorstep and subjects her to a non-stop barrage of physical and mental assaults, Marjorie manages to disarm and capture him. Filled with fear and hostility, she conspires with her roommates (Diana Scarwid and Alfre Woodard) to take the law into their own hands. But as her rage consumes her, Marjorie shocks her friends with a proposal that challenges the perilously thin line between justice and vengeance. *1986: Actress in a Leading Role
I know I'll go with vengeance!
Welcome home Farrah!

I was more a Kate Jackson fan myself.

Amidst the Michael Jackson idol worship 24/7 coverage, NBC rebroadcast "Farrahs Story." I'd not seen the documentary when first broadcast. After seeing so much of the king of pop, then seeing this film, all I can say is the MJ story has nothin' on Farrah Fawcett. She was by far made of stronger stuff, a much finer character.
