Edward Platt (relation unknown to Marc or Ben), probably best known for playing the Chief of Control on "Get Smart" had a beautiful legit singing voice, especially showcased in "Oh, Captain!" singing several songs on the OCR, including one covered by Judy Garland on her TV variety shows, "You're So Right For Me". Here Platt is joined by Eileen Rodgers in the duet, since Abbe Lane, the role's originator had a conflict with her recording company. He also appeared on Broadway in "Allegro".
