"Farrah's Story" is one heart-wrenchingly worthy documentary of an iconic woman
18 May 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Through all the years I've seen Ms. Farrah Fawcett on "Charlie's Angels" and movies like Cannonball Run and "The Burning Bed", not to mention that iconic '70s poster that teenage boys all over America drooled over, she looked so healthy during all that time that I never thought of her as someone who would one day get cancer so when I first heard of that 3 years ago, I was heartbroken. And now that it has recurred, I hope to God she gets better or at least dies with dignity. It certainly was very heart-wrenching seeing her go through all those treatments in Germany and UCLA and then have those tabloids exploit her tragedy to such an extent that California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has passed a bill to stop such intrusions that I was on the verge of crying buckets constantly. But it's so positive to see paramour Ryan O'Neal and their son Redmond, despite their drug troubles, giving Ms. Fawcett such support, not to mention former "Angels" co-stars Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith, cancer survivors themselves, renew their friendship during all this time. And kudos for Alana Stewart for filming the whole thing, warts and all, despite Ms. Stewart's occasional reticence doing so. Also was pleasantly surprised to see her ex-husband George Hamilton at Farrah's birthday party being his massively cool self to the eternally feathery-haired one. Well, not so now since it's all gone except for the bangs which partially shocked me when I saw that but she's still beautiful despite that. All I can say now is God bless you, Ms. Fawcett. May he indeed make you one of HIS angels when the time comes...Update 6/25/09: Ms. Fawcett died this morning. My prayers and condolences are with Ryan, Redmond, her father, and all her closest friends on this sad day of remembrance.
