R.I.P. to a one-of-a-kind multihyphenate, who died Tuesday at 80.
If I had the time I could write a book about how much I love Patrick McGoohan, as an actor, as a director, as a producer, as a personality. I got a phone call from him one day after I wrote a gushy column about "The Prisoner" and how well it holds up through the years. I'll never forget the sound of that scratchy voice with the distinctive timbre. I tried to get him to do a Q&A thing at the Paley Center, but no luck, he was not interested in revisiting the past. So McGoohan-like of him.
