    John Forsythe, the actor who made his fortune as TV's affable Bachelor Father and the scheming oil tycoon in Dynasty, has died at the age of 92.
    Publicist Harlan Boll said Forsythe died late on Thursday from complications of pneumonia, following a year-long battle with cancer in Santa Ynez, California.
    Despite his distinguished work in theatre and films, Forsythe's greatest fame arose from his role of Blake Carrington in the 1981-89 primetime TV soap opera Dynasty.
    With his full head of silver hair, tanned face and soothing voice, Forsythe as Carrington attracted the ardour of millions of female television viewers.
    While he had small roles in a couple of films in the early 1940s, Forsythe's first successes were mainly on the stage.
