Farrah’s Major award

“I like myself best when I’m not smiling,” Farrah Fawcett-Majors, 31, declared at a convention of Midwest film exhibitors in Kansas City. But how could she resist? There were the movie men naming her — before her first featured picture was even released — the Legend of the ’70s. (Well, she did have one memorable role — Raquel Welch tried to seduce her in Myra Breckenridge.)

The joyous surprise for Farrah, though, was the appearance of husband Lee Majors, 37, up from location work in Tampa, to present the plaque. “Now you know why I love him so much,” chirped Farrah.
