Patrick McGoohan passed away recently and although his film career included such diverse roles as Ice Station Zebra, Escape from Alcatraz and Braveheart, for me he will always stand for his work on 1960s TV series The Prisoner.
This is the classic intro:
If you have never seen it, then you should buy the DVD boxset for it is one of the most inventive and distinctive TV shows of its era.
It follows a former British spy who, after resigning, is held captive in a mysterious small village by the sea by an unidentified organisation.
Although he was the star McGoohan also created the series with George Markstein and deserves great credit for fashioning such an unusual and groundbreaking show.
Check out this interview from 1977 where Magoohan discusses the show with Warner Troyer:
