Mar 19: Happy Birthday Danger Man!

On this day in 1928, Emmy Award-winning actor Patrick McGoohan was born in Astoria, Queens, New York. Best known from the television series Danger Man (also known as Secret Agent) and the cult classic The Prisoner, McGoohan was raised in the UK (hence his British fame but neutral accent).
Disney fans know his voice as Billy Bones from the 2002 Treasure Planet. But he also appeared in Disney's 1964 live-action The Three Lives of Thomasina and the 3-part TV serial The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh.
(McGoohan directed, wrote and appeared in a handful of "Columbo" TV episodes!)
