Patrick Joseph McGoohan (March 19, 1928 – January 13, 2009)
McGoohan was that rare breed: a man first and an actor second.
From Wikipedia: McGoohan insisted on several conditions in his
contract before agreeing to do the show Danger Man: all the fist-
fights should be different, the character would always use his brain
before using a gun, and, much to the horror of the executives, no
kissing. They hired him anyway.
McGoohan then conceived The Prisoner. Again from Wikipedia:
McGoohan not only produced, he also wrote, directed and starred
in the show. The Prisoner was a completely new, cerebral kind of
series, stretching the limits of the established television formulas.
