In the early 1940s, Forsythe made his way to Hollywood, where Warner Bros. inked him as a bit player. He soon began building his résumé on television and hit pay dirt in 1957 as the star of the sitcom "Bachelor Father." But it was his role as the voice of Charlie Townsend in the iconic series "Charlie's Angels" (1976-81) and his Golden Globe-winning turn as oilman Blake Carrington in "Dynasty" (1981-89) that made Forsythe a household name to generations of fans.
Though his film work was sporadic, Forsythe's notable efforts include In Cold Blood (1967), And Justice for All (1979) and Scrooged (1988). He died April 1, 2010.
Based on the Leon Uris best-seller of the same name, Alfred Hitchcock's Topaz is a spy thriller set in the Cold War period surrounding the Cuban Missile Crisis (fall 1962). Competing American, French and Cuban spies fight over secrets that both Washington and Moscow want to get their hands on in action that ranges from Harlem, N.Y., to Paris and Havana. See if you can spot the master's cameo about 30 minutes into the movie.
