PHOTOS! Here is the Farrah Fawcett 1976 poster, the famous red swimsuit poster, that fans of Fawcett remember today.
The Farrah Fawcett poster idea according to online reports came from Pro Arts Inc in 1976 which pitched the poster idea to Fawcett and her agent. From that photo shoot produced a shot that became legendary.
Fawcett wore that simple one-piece red bathing suit. Her pose – original – and since copied countless times.
The poster became a best seller, one of the highest grossing poster of the post war era, with online estimates ranging from 5 to 12 million copies.
A quick online search will reveal there were at least three different poses from that sitting, all differing not in body position but the position Fawcett chose with her head. In two, the head is angled, in one the head is straight. But in all the smile is radiant.
Fawcett delivered 29 memorable episodes as Jill Munroe on Charlie’s Angels from 1976 to 1980
Send your love. Farrah Fawcett will be greatly missed.
