Edward Platt Quotes:

Azor the High Priest: Empty! Just as all the others. The bees have deserted us.
Demetrios: Strange.
Azor the High Priest: Each morning of my life I have awakened to the singing of birds. Now only silence greets the day. Perhaps it is instinct, call it what you will, but they *sense* something, something evil. A strange breeze now rises with every outgoing tide, blowing dead leaves out toward the open sea. The humblest insects seem to know it carries them, not to destruction, but to survival. Even the seeds forsake their mother soil. All nature senses that the end is near. Man alone turns deaf ears to nature's warnings.


[the Sheriff warns Jim about the brothers of a murderous Deputy Sheriff Jim killed in self-defense]
Sheriff J.C. Marston: When they hear about this, they're going to come looking for you.
Jim Slater: Seems logical.
Sheriff J.C. Marston: If it's your idea to shoot it out with them, you're going to lose.
Jim Slater: Could be.
Sheriff J.C. Marston: And even if you beat 'em, you're going to lose... because I'm going to hang the man that wins.


Johnny Haggerty: It's tough to be a good guy and a cop at the same time.

Edward Platt Facts
Best remembered by the public for his starring role as the C.O.N.T.R.O.L. Chief in "Get Smart" (1965).

Had one daughter by his first wife; two sons and a daughter by second wife Suzanne.

Platt's death is somewhat of a mystery. For years it was reported he died from a heart attack at age 58. More recently it has been alleged (the information found on-line) that his son Jeff spoke out and stated in an interview that his father died as the result of suicide in 1974 after two previous attempts while suffering from an undiagnosed and untreated depression that was further sparked by financial troubles.
