Farrah Fawcett - Farrah Fawcett Red Swimsuit Donated To National Museum
FARRAH FAWCETT's famous red swimsuit has been donated to the Smithsonian National Museum of American History in Washington.
FARRAH FAWCETT's red swimsuit, which helped make the 'Charlie's Angels' star a national icon, is being donated to the Smithsonian in Washington, along with various other pieces of memorabilia from the hit television series, reports the Press Association.
Fawcett, who died in 2009 following a long battle with cancer, first starred in the long-running series in 1976. Her long-time companion RYAN O'NEAL is also donating a 1976 poster of the TV star as part of the museum's popular culture history collection. The iconic image, which shows Fawcett in the famous red swimsuit, has sold over 12 million copies worldwide and the actress was said to have earned far more in poster royalties then she ever did from her role in Charlie's Angeles. Also heading to the Smithsonian are copies of the original scripts from the first season of the show, as well as a 1977 FARRAH FAWCETT doll.
Other items currently being exhibited in the museum's popular culture collection include original drawings by CHARLES SCHULZ, the cartoonist behind 'Peanuts', and MICHAEL JACKSON's hat.
