Event alert: The Unmutual and Quoit Media are hosting a special event at Elstree Studios to celebrate Patrick McGoohan (co-creator of the iconic series, The Prisoner). Not A Number: A Patrick McGoohan Retrospective will take place on Saturday, June 23rd, at Elstree Studios in Boremhamwood. Special guests will include actress Jane Merrow (Danger Man, The Prisoner/"Schizoid Man"), director John Hough (The Avengers, The Champions, Brass Target), actress Vera Day (Hell Drivers), and others. A rare chance to get inside Elstree, see props and costumes, and to hear stories from cast/crew of these 60s classics. Tickets and info here. From the press release: "Patrick McGoohan is regarded as one of the finest acting talents of the 20th Century. Starting out on the stage, with critically acclaimed appearances in works such as Brand and Serious Charge, he became Britain's highest paid television actor appearing as John Drake in ITC's Danger Man series before he co-created, starred in, and produced The Prisoner series - a landmark in TV history, still loved, respected and examined 50 years on. Appearing in countless films, stage plays, and television shows, Patrick McGoohan is a true TV visionary. The iconic Elstree Studios, where Patrick McGoohan filmed some of his work, including his first ever film appearance in The Dam Busters, will play host to this very special event to celebrate the man, his work, and his legacy. The event has been approved by the McGoohan family. Special guests, including those who worked with Patrick McGoohan, as well as those who have been inspired by his work, will take part in exclusive and interactive Q&A sessions. In addition, there will be official and exclusive screenings, signings, and other happenings, to celebrate the man and his work, including an unmissable display of original costumes, props, and memorabilia from The Prisoner, Danger Man, and McGoohan movies!"
