RIP Patrick McGoohan

Sad farewell to Patrick McGoohan who passed away on January 13, 2009. I see that he was born in Astoria, NY, only a few towns away from where I was born.

Patrick was a TV Star of "Secret Agent" and "The Prisoner." One of his last roles that I recall was as King Edward "Longshanks" in Mel Gibson's "Braveheart."

I remember watching both TV shows in the 60's. As I recall, "Secret Agent" was on Friday or Saturday nights and was one of the few shows that I looked forward to.

I loved the theme music to the show, of course, "Secret Agent Man" by Johnny Rivers.

So long Patrick. You will be missed.
