RIP, Patrick McGoohan

The favorite actor of my youth has died. Patrick McGoohan played the lead in the great television drama Secret Agent, as well as the Prisoner and a host of feature films. But for me, and many others, it was his lead and title role in Disney's the Scarecrow that will always be remembered.

I just read the obit, Jake. And, like you,I was a big fan of the man. The Prisoner was the Lost of its time. Who were the writers? Did they cut their teeth with Serling? Is The Prisoner out on DVD? I hope so.

BTW. Thought of you as we were driving through Charleston yesterday. Spent a night on Jekyll Island. Great place, to which we plan to return.

Need to spend some time on the Georgia coast, but as of now am consumed with boat restoration and house building projects... thus, the light blogging.

My fave Brit from that era was what's-her-name (Diana something?) who played Emma Peel in The Avengers. Extremely hot ...
