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.
Helmed by Delmer Daves, this suspenseful World War II adventure centers on an American submarine crew -- led by Capt. Cassidy (Cary Grant) -- sent to infiltrate enemy waters to gather intelligence for the first Allied bombing of Tokyo. Featuring a crackling, Oscar-nominated script and a first-rate performance by Grant, the film also stars John Garfield, Dane Clark and John Forsythe (in his big-screen debut).
