I remember him better as the male lead in "The Girl From U.N.C.L.E.", playing Mark Slate along to April Dancer, played by Stephanie Powers.

He was the son of Rex Harrison (Dr Doolittle, Henry Higgins), but that's his Dad, not him. Also father to Cathryn Harrison.

Blue clicky to obit

Really enjoyed him in a road company performance of Camelot. Sounds like he fell on hard times.

The story goes that Noel didn't like "Windmill of Your Mind" and was quite vocal about the fact!
However, when it became an international hit, he got in the touch with the composer Michel Legrand, and asked for a copy of the score.
Michel told him to sod of...or the French equivalent!

He lived in rural Nova Scotia for a time, and I saw him perform at a couple of folk festivals there. Had never heard of him; there was a rumour that he was son of Rex. I kind of liked the guy; he was unpretentious, and sang 'How are We Going to Keep the Boys Down on the Farm (After They've Seen Paris)?'. Didn't know he had had any kind of a show-biz career until I read his obit just now.

RIP
