I hardly ever watched Charlie's Angels, not to my taste. Odd that T&A shows failed to interest me, isn't it? LOL!
But that was my generation, age 60 now, and I can vouch that the impact of Farrah Fawcett was enormous. This was just before the explosion of cable, when the 3 broadcast networks still ruled US television (ABC, CBS, NBC). If you had a hit TV show with them, you were as big as any movie star, the subject of avid break-room conversations every day. Difficult for younger people today to fully understand that, I know.
And Farrah was not merely a TV star, but a cultural phenomenon. Her look was copied and became associated with the 1970s. The standard for ultimate female beauty in that period was Farrah Fawcett.
Plus she just seemed to be a nice, classy, smart and decent lady. No scandals associated with her (except the shock of her Lee Majors divorce), no tawdry episodes like today's stars, no blonde bimbo persona. A professional actor, who for a time was the epitome of femininity in the United States. And grace like hers, no less than in the personal courage of her passing, will be sorely missed.
