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.

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.
