Forsooth Forsythe

Before he became famous playing fathers and non-father father figures (as in Bachelor Father and Charlie's Angels), John Forsythe was a "legitimate" actor. This week's objet d'eBay, the Playbill from a 1949 production of Tony-honored Mister Roberts, remembers the late actor and the time before he became the [male] face of Dynasty. As he mentioned once or twice, making schlock did not make him the best actor he could be. However, it did give him the time and money in his life and to revel in the life he created with one son, two daughters, six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
