    Here's a link. I hated to hear this although it had been expected for a while now. She will always be remembered for that poster that came out during her Charlie's Angels years. One of the best selling pinup posters of all time. For most of us guys that are in our 40's or so, she will be remembered very fondly.
    This completes the trifecta of recent celebrity deaths;Carradine,McMahon and now Fawcett. It always happens in three's doesn't it.

    She was one of my early crushes. I dare say, she still remains one of the most beautiful women in history (and I am pretty sure it was natural).
    Watching her recent health troubles was rather depressing. She really did seem like quite a nice person.

    Nah, Carradine gets bumped.

    The new three is McMahon, Fawcett and Jackson.

    Re: Farrah Fawcett R.I.P.

    The first time I remember seeing Farrah was in a Noxzema commercial where she was shaving Joe Namath. "Let Noxzema Cream Your Face, so the razor don't." Another one I remember which I think was also Namatha and Farrah was "Let creamy cream ya, with Noxzema." I had no idea who she was, but remember thinking how totally hot she was (of course totally hot was a phrase that came later, at the time I think we said, "she's a fox"). Those commercials are what got her started I think. Then came Charlie's Angels and the poster.

    RIP, 62 is way too young for anybody.

    I wasn't allowed to have "The Poster", but my friends had it. I really liked it.

    So long Farrah.

    Same boat too. I wasn't allowed either and one of my friends had it plus a Jaclyn Smith poster. I liked them both a lot.

    To think, back then I probably had NO idea what they were talking about. lol I wonder if there were bigger selling posters back at the time then the Farrah poster or the one w/Bo Derek. Farrah was the original blonde angel. They tried to replace her but it was never quite the same.

    To be famous for beauty, and then to let your detoriation be filmed as you die of cancer to raise awareness is as selfless as it gets.

    RIP, Farrah.

    Actually, I liked Cheryl Ladd better. Not that I didn't like Farrah. I didn't have the poster but I had a T-Shirt of that picture. I was sad to hear that she was sick and I'm sorry to hear she passed away for her and her family.

    One of the top 5 hottest women of all time. Simply gorgeous. Breathtakingly so. I had a crush on her when I was 6 and she was 30. Heck, I even had a crush on her when she was 50 and I was 26.

    And that poster. I might have been 5 or 6, but I remember seeing that poster everywhere back then and I remember even at such a young age, I couldn't stop looking at it. Made me feel warm and fuzzy.

    And selfless is a great word for what she did towards the end, Dom. What courage it must have taken to expose herself like that when she was at her weakest and so vulnerable and scared.

    Rest in peace, Farrah. Class woman in every way.

    I wasn't aware of that poster until I saw The Shawshank Redemption.
