Interesting documentary on Amazon (it's on Prime at the moment):

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Farah-Diba-Pahlavi-Last-Princess/dp/B07NDGN919

She tells the story of her marriage to his 'majesty' and ultimately his death. All the way through there is a narrative about her good works, building hospitals, museums and libraries and reporting the state of the people to her husband. The talking heads who are invited are all pro-monarchists.

But this self-aggrandisement highlights the problem within regimes such as the Pahlavis'. The documentary makes some passing references that also explain the causes of the Pahlavis' downfall, such as 30% of the government's annual budget being spent on arms. 

Set against that fundamental problem, no matter what she did she was just 're-arranging the deckchairs on the Titanic'.

Salam her good  works are main strong point of all pro-monarchists which as you has mentioned  it has been 're-arranging the deckchairs on the Titanic' which recently  it has exposed  which she has given previously  purchased weapons during Shah's era likewise  jet fighters to Saddam for attacking  to Iranian cities & destroying her good works likewise hospitals & museums  & libraries  which pro-monarchists could  not refute it until now & story of her marriage & introducing  her to his "majesty" has censored rule of cooperation  of SAVAK (Iranian secret service) & french secret service (DGSE) in introducing her to Shah which has organized  as sudden falling in love & choosing  her in a private ceremony  which result of their marriage has been entering communist to royal court thrugh her as an infilitrator of  DGSE & Mossad which has great impact on Shah for his opposing  with religion & revolutionary  scholars of Hawzah of Qom in his final years & also their betrayal  to each other heavily censored but at the end it exposed to public which later after revolution has been approved by memoirs  of close people to them .

Iraqi Baath Documents Reveal Pahlavi Regime’s Collaboration with Saddam in Bombing Iranian Cities

The Arabic-language al-Ittijah news channel reported that the family members of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the former Shah of Iran, who fled the country after the Islamic Revolution made attempts to help Saddam win the imposed war against Iran in cooperation with former head of Savak (secret police, domestic security and intelligence service in Iran during the reign of the Pahlavi dynasty) Teimour Bakhtiar.

It added that the documents show that certain military equipment, including the US and French fighter jets, which had been purchased during the Shah era in Iran were supplied to Saddam to bomb the Iranian cities with the agreement of Mohammad Reza’s wife, Farah Pahlavi.

Did you ever meet Saddam Hussein during your two decades as the first lady of Iran?

I met him during the Iranian Revolution.

I think it was November 1978, and I had gone to Najaf, the holy city in Iraq, to meet with a respected ayatollah. Saddam was vice president then, and he came to receive me.

What was he like?

I was a little bit astonished, because he had a long black cape coming down to his ankles, which was very strange.

You mean he was trying to make a fashion statement?

Yes. He thought the cape gave him a little style, or at least a different style.

I higlhy disrespect this woman because she never accepted to admit that his husband was a dictator who persecute his opponents, religious Muslims in particular.
