NEW SECRET AGENT SET

Hot news: Shout Factory will release a new Secret Agent (Danger Man) DVD box set on December 9th! With the 2010 A&E complete box set out-of-print, we're excited to hear that Patrick McGoohan's early spy classic will be available again. In addition to the original 86 episode, the set will also include audio commentaries by writer Brian Clemens (The Avengers) and director Peter Graham Scott (The Avengers, The Prisoner), plus an interview with Catherine McGoohan! Press release: "'Every government has its secret service branch. America, CIA; France, Deuxième Bureau; England, MI5. NATO also has its own. A messy job? Well that's when they usually call on me or someone like me. Oh yes, my name is Drake, John Drake.' Patrick McGoohan (The Prisoner) stars as John Drake in Secret Agent, the popular television series from the Golden Age of Spy Thrillers, the 1960s. Traveling the world to capture international criminals, John Drake rarely solved problems with a gun, preferring to use charm and wit over violence to bring in the bad guys. Encompassing all 86 episodes from its successful broadcast run, Secret Agent (known in the United Kingdom as Danger Man) is an essential addition to the collection of any fan of the spy game. B&W and Color." This is one of my all-time favorite spy shows. So smartly written and intensely acted, each episode could stand as a short movie. The big question on everyone's mind is whether or not the new set will offer an upgrade to the past A&E NTSC box sets. Stay tuned! Shout Factory page. Thank you to Cinema Retro for putting this on our radar.
