He was also good in the movie "Ice Station Zebra." I remember my mom and I catching "The Prisoner" on late night TV on some local independent channel years ago. We had to watch it through static and fiddle with the antenna. (My parents would not get cable!) But, we loved the heck out of it. I also recommend Thomas M. Disch's novella "The Prisoner" (if you can find it on Amazon). It would have made a few good episodes.
