Stage and screen veteran Marc Platt has died, aged 100.
The singer and dancer, who originated the role of Dream Curly in the 1943 Broadway production of Oklahoma! and portrayed Daniel Pontipee in the 1954 movie musical Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, died in Marin, California on Saturday (29Mar14).
Platt also danced with the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo in the 1930s and teamed up onscreen with the likes of Rita Hayworth in Tonight and Every Night and Down to Earth, and comedian Sid Caesar in Tars and Spars. He also appeared on Tv in shows like Sky King, The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp and Matlock.
Once the film and Tv roles dried up, Platt and his late wife Jean Goodall opened a ballet school in Florida..
