Was anyone else a fan of Patrick McGoohan in the old "Secret Agent" tv series?  I used to watch it faithfully and loved it.  I recently looked up a website about Patrick McGoohan.  It said he was the first actor offered the role of James Bond but he refused it, as it was not the type of character he wished to portray.  (Wouldn't it be great if more actors/actresses would be like this today?)

After the James Bond movies became popular, Patrick McGoohan was offered the role on "Secret Agent".  He insisted the bedroom scene be removed from the first episode.  Also, he said if they wanted him to play the role, there would be no romantic entanglements in any of the scripts!

Secret Agent was a good series. It is too bad that many actors are willing to sacrifice morals for a career and popularity. I thought that Patrick McGoohan was a good actor in all the roles that he played in.

Yes, I agree.

I remember McGoohan was even in a Colombo murder mystery.  He played the bad guy but it was interesting to see him and Colombo match wits!

I think that he was in two or three different Colombo episodes.

Yes, there was The Saint with Roger Moore, I think.  I don't remember that one as well.  David McCallum and Robert Vaughn were both in The Man from U.N.C.L.E.....another one of my favorite spy shows as a kid.

Happy, happy birthday to you!  (I just sang this for you.   Smiley )

I also have trouble with my memory at times.....mostly, it's my short term memory that's the problem.  I think it's from the age of overload that we live in today.....just too much stuff these days.  So you are not alone!
