Patrick McGoohan
Originally uploaded by reloutyf
As a writer, a director, an artist, and a class act individual of integrity and vision, he has been an inspiration for well more than half a century. And for many years he has been one of my few true personal heroes.

I have seen every production of his that I possibly could find, from his inspired and passionate Brand to his charming and tongue-in-cheek "The Computer Wore Menace Shoes." His work has made an incalculable impact on me.

I maintain that his masterpiece, The Prisoner, is one of the most imporant and influential, and to my mind the greatest, television series of all time.

He was a true and uncompromising original. Patrick McGoohan, Rest in Peace.
