When Patrick McGoohan first starred in Danger Man in 1960 and as `Number 6' in cult show The Prisoner, industry insiders hailed the arrival of an enigmatic genius and Hollywood beckoned. But who was this man who worked as a chicken farmer and bank clerk before becoming a hugely successful actor simply by chance? In this up-to-date biography Rupert Booth reveals the true character of a man whose off-screen behaviour matched his fiery on-screen persona. Why was he so puritanical, refusing to even kiss a woman for any part he played? Why was he so controlling over his work in The Prisoner and other productions? A timely exploration of the man whose declaration `I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, de-briefed or numbered!' continues to resonate with audiences decades after it was first uttered with such conviction.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Many people have tried to reach a conclusion about the sort of person that Patrick McGoohan really was. For the first time, Rupert Booth may well have found the answer.' Rick Davy, The Unmutual Prisoner website `...at last an in-depth exploration of a controversial character who can teach us all to say "no" at a time when we need to...' Dazed & Confused "A genuinely good read and the author must be congratulated. Booth has a very warm writing style, and in telling a personal story of Patrick McGoohan and his devotion to wife Joan, sprinkled with film/TV along the way, he has approached the subject matter in a more attractive way than a simple "screenography" approach. As a result we do get a view on what sort of MAN he was rather than just what sort of ACTOR he was." - The Unmutual
