John Forsythe (1918-2010)

  1. Rock Hudson, Magnificent Obsession, 1954. Universal’s Forsythe-Loretta Young became Hudson-Jane Wyman because Young abhored re-makes (good gal!)Production chief Ed Muhl remembered how the l935 version made an instant star of Robert Taylor and decided: Rock was ready to roll...
  2. Charlton Heston, Three Violent People, 1955.   A big Broadway hit in The Teahouse of the August Moon, Forsythe headed West and won a seven-picture deal with Paramoumt. Thankfully, this hammy B-Western was not among them. But my favourite Hitchcock, The Trouble With Harry, was. “Good, ” said Hitch when we finally met in London, circa 1966, “because that’s my second favourite film, after Shadow of a Doubt. And no one ever . asked me that question:  what is your second favourite film?”  ”(With that, he woke up and the rest of the interview was  a blast). 
  3. Cornel Wilde, Omar Khayyam, 1956.   In the Persian frame for the poet  Khayyam - and not Khaiyyam as in a 1945 film, or Khayham for a 1924 shot  were Forsythe,  Rossano Brazzi, John Neville, and (the too young) Robert Wagner.
  4. Pernell Roberts, Trapper John, MD, TV, 1979-1986.  Wayne Rogers, theoriginalTVersion of Dr John Francis Xavier “Trapper” McIntyre in M*A*S*H, TV, 1972-1975, turned down the sequel series.
  5. Richard Attenborough, Jurassic Park, 1993.The voice of the unseen Charlie in Charlie’s Angels, TV, 1976-81, was thedinopark's boss in June 1992... until His Lordship became available. Attenborough'sGandhihad beaten Spielberg and ET to the1982 Best Director and Best Film Oscars. No hard feelings.Apparently.
