A sour-looking bit player from England, Joe Forte usually portrayed professional men, faculty members, doctors, lawyers, coroners, and the like. Rarely billed, Forte is probably best remembered today as the pontificating high school principal in Tell Your Children (aka Reefer Madness) (1938) and as the vengeful banker in Fury at Gunsight Pass (1956). He continued to appear in bit roles onscreen and in television (The Jack Benny Show, Perry Mason) until retiring in the mid-'60s due to health problems. The veteran actor died of a heart attack.
