NETFLIX offers up 2 Fawcett films for Immediate Viewing

Two of Farrah's critically acclaimed films are on-line and viewable instantly on Netlfix, they are The Burning Bed and Extremities. So, be sure and check out Netflix if you don't have an account... it's easy, and it's also viewable on your IPhone or IPad.

The Burning Bed: In 1977, after suffering years of abuse at the hands of her brutal husband, Mickey (Paul Le Mat), Michigan housewife Francine Hughes (Farrah Fawcett) killed him one night by setting fire to him as he slept. Prosecuted with the vigor of the law, Hughes's case made legal history. Fawcett received an Emmy nomination (and proved herself a serious actress for the first time) for her role in this acclaimed television adaptation of a true story. *


Extremities: Who'd have thought "Charlie's Angel" Farrah Fawcett had the acting chops to play the role of a sexual assault victim who takes revenge on her attacker? But she pulls it off brilliantly in this film version of the off-Broadway play (in which she also starred). Fawcett wrings true drama from this story about an embattled woman who graduates from helplessness to empowerment through the sheer force of her own will.*
