Fare Thee Well, Angel



Farrah Fawcett.

A woman I don't believe reached her potential as an actor, but what the hell do I know?? She was gifted enough to be able to show strength and vulnerability coinciding in her characters.

Below is a tiny snippet of a role she had in The Apostle with Robert Duvall. I think maybe her best role. And Charlie's Angels--what a lark that was given the hullaballoo of the seventies.

In any event, rest well, Angel. Death could not dim your beauty.

  1. It's sad she has such a rough time these last few years. She seemed to handled her illness with such grace.

    And now I just heard that Michael Jackson died, too. Geez, bloggers are going to have a field day with that.

  3. She sure gave the cancer a good fight. I'm sorry she had to suffer so.

  4. I was moved by her documentary. I was appalled by the blatant disregard for her medical privacy and applaud her effort to tell her story in her own words. She was a very stoic woman and I'm saddened by this loss.

    I wanted to cry when I heard about Michael Jackson. His music was the soundtrack to my young adult life.

  5. Remember her "wings" -- the hair kind? Now she has the real ones.

  7. The Apostle is one of my favorite movies. I was blown away by Duvall's portrayal of a preacher, because my dad was a preacher, and he was so like him, I was stunned.

    You're right that Fawcett was great in it too, and I agree we might not have seen enough of her talent. I would like to see her doc film at the end of her life, but then it looks pretty gut wrenching.
