THIS IS FARRAH FAWCETT
May 23, 2019  | By David Bianculli

ABC, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

DOCUMENTARY SPECIAL:  This new biography, 10 years after the death of the famous actress, utilizes audio diaries she had recorded in the final years of her life. It also, however, will leave ample room to show photos and clips from her TV and movie career – which goes all the way back to 1975, pre-Charlie’s Angels, when she played her David Janssen’s beach neighbor on his short-lived detective series, Harry O (pictured). But this ABC special, I’m guessing, will be heavier on the ABC images from Charlie’s Angels, and from her famous posters. Today, a poster is thought of as someone who blogs or comments online. Back in the 1970s, a poster was something affixed to a bedroom wall – and Fawcett’s smiling face was plastered on millions of those walls. (Not mine, though: My wall art predilections, then and now, lean much more towards obscurity.)
