1947-2009
Rest in Peace, Farrah



So sad to see her lose her battle.
I liked her back in the day, but I especially liked her fighting spirit while she was dealing with aggressive cancer for three years.

Her 1984 movie, The Burning Bed was incredible and addressed spousal abuse long before it became a national issue.

She proved she could act in that movie.

Dusty said...

Yep, she sure did. RIP sweet woman.

Brave lady. She deserved better.

To me she'll always be that sweet beautiful and very artistic girl from Corpus Christi that wowed the world with her strength and beauty. Bye Farrah, Texans were proud that you were one of us.

I loved Farrah. She was an amazing artist as well. Not many people know that (I mean besides her great body of acting work). I saw that poster when I was 12 and I thought I could will myself into growing up to look exactly like her. Truly at some point, I just assumed that would happen.

And how difficult to make a documentary on her cancer. Brave woman.

She was also apparently a really sweet woman and I still to this day can't figure out what she saw in Ryan O'Neal (asshole).

RIP, Farrah :(

Re: The Burning Bed - one of the hardest movies to watch ever! She was brilliant. And she was one of the first (if not the first) glamour girls to take off the makeup for a role.
