Why A Page About Ed Platt???
Why ask why? Here's the explanation: I began to admire Edward Platt while watching "Get Smart" and I wanted to see his other works. Gradually I learned what a fine and dedicated actor he was. He's left an indelible mark in the industry as The Chief, but Edward's done so much more that maybe other fans would enjoy seeing that work. This site will feature those other performances. I hope you enjoy this site, it's been a labor of love
