I thought Patrick McGoohan was one of the most underated actors, his creation of the prisoner and his portral was way ahead of his time and the “Secret Agent Man” series was a milestone in tv fast passed spy drama. I am so saddened by his loss…. he leaves a great legacy of work.

Ricardo Montalban has always been one of my favorites, even bought my 1977 cordoba because of his great ads for the car. his portrayal of khan in the star trek films was the best, he has always conducted his life with style and dignity. Many stars of today could do well to emulate this fine man’s life style.
