She was, in her way, the defining beauty of an era; she even turned out to be something of an actress, of the sort whose successes, fairly or not, are each treated as a surprise.

It was always odd and somehow unsettling to think of her as a 60-something invalid, and in time perhaps some of her less fortunate moments will fade and we will think of her as I think she would have liked, all hair, teeth, and California charm.

  1. She really seemed to have tried and that sure counts for something.

    And that hair! I'm sure it sold a billion curling irons. Every other girl in my yearbook is at least attempting the look...and that's 6 or 7 years after she debuted it. Double the impact of the hair styles of Aniston, Hammel & Lake combined and that's Farrah.
