The red swimsuit that helped make "Charlie's Angels" actress Farrah Fawcett a 1970s icon is going to the Smithsonian in Washington.
Fawcett's longtime companion Ryan O'Neal donated the swimsuit and other items to the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History Wednesday. A 1976 poster of Fawcett in the dampened one-piece swimsuit sold millions of copies.
Also donated to the Smithsonian were Fawcett's copies of scripts for the first season of "Charlie's Angels" and a 1977 Farrah Fawcett doll.
The items will be part of the museum's popular culture history collection.
Fawcett died in 2009 at the age of 62 after battling cancer.
