Although Fawcett's first major film role in Myra Breckinridge (1970) was a critical flop, a popular pinup that showed off the blond actress's assets in a skimpy one-piece set her on course for major stardom. Despite a résumé of Emmy-nominated roles in television movies such as The Burning Bed (1984) and Small Sacrifices (1989), Fawcett is best known as one of the three original "Charlie's Angels" -- even though she was only a series regular for one season.
In 2006, Fawcett began what would become a painful and public battle with cancer, an ordeal documented in the news special "Farrah's Story." She finally succumbed to the disease on June 25, 2009.
In the year 2274, the world's urban centers have been abandoned due to ecological disaster, and the remaining population has forged a society in a domed city, where no one is allowed to live past age 30 in this sci-fi adventure from Michael Anderson. Michael York stars as a population control agent who, nearing the age of 30, goes on the run to avoid certain death, and Richard Jordan plays his ex-partner determined to hunt him down.
