Pat Curley

McGoohan was a fascinating actor. Be sure to check out his performances in the Secret Agent/Danger Man shows as well, several of which are available on You Tube. It's sort of a G-Rated, non-violent low-gadget no-camp Bond.

I covered one of the Gold Key adaptations of Secret Agent at Silver Age Comics.

Wes C

I second Pat's recommendation. Danger Man is wonderful. It's even more enjoyable than the Prisoner in some ways. A feeling of sleekness and leaness permeat the episodes. Like Pat said, there's very little violence (he never even used a gun in the episodes I've seen) and it's very low-tech. Like the Prisoner, it actually depends on strong plotting and characterization to make the story work.
I wish there were more shows like it today.

And the 60's women are quite lovely - and the theme song is this nice little harpsichord ditty - that's just icing on the cake.

Jon Knutson

I know it's not quite the same, but I just recently posted a video of the Magna-Slide version of "the Scarecrow of Romney Marsh" on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f98Gpqp1St4

It seems most of the original show is available there, too...
