AMERICAN DYNASTY: A Tribute To John Forsythe (January 29, 1918 – April 1, 2010)


AMERICAN DYNASTY: A Tribute To John Forsythe (January 29, 1918 – April 1, 2010)
by Darius Kadivar

Most you probably remember him for his role as Dynasty's Blake Carrington or his inimitable voice as "Charlie" in Charlie Angels or his roles in Hitchcock Movies like Topaz or The Trouble With Harry. I will best remember John Forsythe as the loving Father in To Rome WIth Love, about an American teacher who upon his wife's death goes overseas with his three daughters for a teaching position in Rome, Italy. I used to watch this on Iranian TV in the 1970's.

Report on Forsythe's demise:

Linda Evans & John Forsythe in 1960 :

The Trouble With Harry (1956) "Awkward Moment" :

In a Supporting Role in Hitcock's Spy Thriller Topaz set between Paris, New York and Havana during the Cuban Crisis:

And the Trailer:

After Farrah Fawcett, Peter Graves and now John Forsythe, it seems that we are witnessing the end of an Era of charismatic Tv Stars who blessed our TV screens of the 60's and 70's at a time when Quality was more important that Quantity.

Thank you for the great post.

Yes, he was a very good actor that made it look all too easy. He was suave and with a very distinctive voice. May he rest in peace.

P.S. In early 80s I once saw him in San Francisco but he was walking too fast with his head down. I did not not get a chance to talk to him.
