Baby Boomers: Patrick McGoohan

Baby boomer fun is a semi regular Thursday feature where we leave real estate behind, at least on the blog!

Patrick McGoohan, a two time Emmy Winner died on Wednesday at the age of 80. Readers will remember him as the star of a short lived TV Series, (though a cult classic), entitled The Prisoner. There were only 17 episodes produced from October, 1967 through February, 1968.

Perhaps less recalled, though no less interesting was McGoohan's other TV series from that era, Secret Agent, (known in the UK as "Danger Man"). In the US, the series aired from 1964 until 1966. The theme for the show was the Johnny Rivers song, Secret Agent Man, which topped out at # 3 on the charts in 1966.

Here is the opening sequence from The Prisoner, approximately 2 minutes.
