RIP John Forsythe

SANTA YNEZ, Calif.–John Forsythe, the debonair actor whose matinee-idol looks, confident charm and mellifluous voice helped make him the star of three hit television series, including ABC’s “Dynasty,” died at his home here Thursday, April 1, from complications of pneumonia. He was 92. MSTies will recall him as incredibly gullible Sen. David Stratton in episode 615- KITTEN WITH A WHIP.

His full obit is here.

    Man. There’s been a lot of bummer deaths lately. This one sucks. At least he had a long, successful career.

    I just watched “Kitten With A Whip” the other day, first time in years. Maybe I will watch one of his better films, “The Trouble With Harry” again this weekend.
