Farrah Fawcett - a life remembered


Smiling radiantly for the camera, with her famous mane tumbling over her shoulders, the young Farrah Fawcett struck a swimsuit pose which in 1976 would catapult her to international stardom. She was snapped by a poster company which had heard about an up-and-coming Texas beauty doing shampoo commercials. The result – which used an old blanket from the photographer's car as a backdrop –smashed all sales records. A still-unrivalled 12 million copies were snapped up, bringing Farrah's tousled hair and beautiful smile to the attention of the world
