'Charlie's Angel' Farrah Fawcett Loses Battle With Cancer

Goodbye Angel.  Actress Farrah Fawcett, of TV series 'Charlie's Angels' fame and whose feathered blonde mane made her one of the reigning sex symbols of the 1970s, died at 62 after a long battle with cancer.

Fawcett, born February 2, 1947, in Corpus Christi, Texas, started guest-starring on TV in the late 1960s and appeared on the television hit "The Six Million Dollar Man" after marrying the show's star, Lee Majors, in 1974. The couple divorced in the early 1980s.

She rose to fame in the 1970s, thanks to a best-selling poster showing off her famous mane and the hit show "Charlie's Angels."

Her death in a Los Angeles hospital came just six weeks after the TV broadcast in May of a video diary she made chronicling her battle with cancer and her final months.

The documentary, called "Farrah's Story,"  was a self-penned obituary by the actress, who was bedridden and had lost her famous hair by the time it was shown.
