Farrah Fawcett: R.I.P.

As you probably know by now, Farrah Fawcett died last week after a long battle with cancer. In the mid 70's, I was one of many adolescent boys with a huge crush on her, and of course I had "The Poster" tacked to my bedroom wall. I even kept it up after the plant in my bedroom window got over watered and dribbled down the entire length of the poster, giving her loveliness a slightly wrinkled, waterlogged look. This was back when she was known as Farrah Fawcett-Majors, because she was, of course, married to The Six Million Dollar Man, Lee Majors. As I'm sure you know, she got her start with Charlie's Angels, which aired on Wednesday nights at 9 as I recall. As a tribute, I offer this clip, which is the version of the opening credits for the pilot episode from 1976, it is a little longer than the version used for the regular season. Rest In Peace, Ms. Fawcett.
