For her generation, Farah Fawcett served as an icon. One of the most well-known posters ever is of her wearing a red bathing suit. People from all around the world expressed their sorrow at the actress’s loss when she was diagnosed with cancer and later passed away.

At the age of 62, the actress lost her fight with cancer in 2009. But, prior to her passing, she took part in the production of the “Farrah’s Tale” documentary, which detailed her sickness. To spread more knowledge about her illness, the actress took part in the documentary.

Pingel has been thinking about Fawcett lately because it’s the anniversary of the release of the Charlie’s Angels movie. The movie had its debut on March 21st, 1976. The most watched TV programs of the 1970s were a result of its success.

Together with co-stars Jaclyn Smith and Kate Jackson, Fawcett played Jill Monroe.

Aaron Spelling and Leonard Goldberg developed and produced “Charlie’s Angeles” for ABC. The program ranked as the fifth-best network program for the 1976–1977 season. As a result, it was at the time, according to The New York Times, the highest-rated TV debut ever.

When Pingel first saw Fawcett, he immediately recognized the astute businesswoman. They also developed a close friendship.

“As a boss, she was an amazing person,” Pingel explained. “She was exactly who you thought she was. A down to Earth Texan – just a good, wonderful woman. And the smartest woman I knew. She knew what her image was worth. She knew what she was worth… She was just the smartest person in the room and the person everybody wanted to meet. Jay Bernstein, who was her old manager, once told me, ‘Everybody wanted to meet Farrah from the busboy to the Prince of Wales. Whoever was in the room wanted to meet Farrah wherever she was.’ And it was absolutely true.”

The actress received a cancer diagnosis a year after he started working as her assistant. Before receiving her illness, she was still in high demand, with filmmakers sending her scripts in the hopes that she would collaborate with them.

“She was choosy in everything she did,” said Pingel. “She wanted to do good projects… She wanted to do projects that spoke on things, but she also liked doing fun things.”

The actress appeared in one season of Charlie’s Angels and intermittently thereafter. The actress, according to Pingel, had no second thoughts about her choice. She believed that the lengthy production schedule and the screenplay both needed improvement. She therefore deemed her contract void and fled.

A $7 million contract breach case was then filed against her. Fawcett later consented to return for six more episodes as part of a settlement. She only made an appearance in 29 of the 115 episodes, yet she was still the big star.

“I left Charlie’s Angels because I felt creatively stifled,” Farrah said.

“Now, when I go back to Charlie’s Angels, it is much better. I have a chance to work with the writers on the script and the director. I can treat it like a business, I could not do that before, I was hurt at first because I was sued.”

“Farrah had a huge career,” Pingel said. “’Charlie’s Angels’ was just one year out of her career. She knew that it catapulted her… She [and the other girls] couldn’t go anywhere with paparazzi and fans following them everywhere… She always loved ‘Charlie’s Angels.’ And a lot of it was the camaraderie with Jaclyn and Kate. They were sisters. As a threesome, they shot into stardom together… They were always going to be connected to this embodiment of the ‘70s, the golden years of television. She really embraced it. She enjoyed it. [And] she was happy when she left. She thought she did what she could with the character, and she went on to do… great work as an actress.”
