Always Be My Angel
"Once upon a time, there were 3 little girls who went to the police academy..."
Every week, Mr. B. would look forward to that evening when he would watch Sabrina Duncan, Kelley Garrett and Jill Munroe doing their private investigations under the supervision of Charlie, and of course Bosley. That was one of the highlights of his youth way back in the 1970's.
Charlie's Angels was a big hit back then. Even bigger was one of the stars of the show - Farrah Fawcett-Majors, then the wife of the Six Million Dollar Man, Lee Majors. Back then, everyone was familiar with that classic red bathing suit poster, and how many women tried to immitate that feathered hair? After only a little more than a year, Farrah left the show and new angels came and went - Cheryl Ladd, Shelley Hack, Tanya Roberts. But Farrah will always be remembered as one of the original angels. Forget the movies.
Farrah Fawcett at 62 succumbed to cancer on the same day Michael Jackson died of cardiac arrest. But I am sure she will forever live in the minds of many people as the most beautiful of Charlie's group of Angels.
