who is number one

I just got the following note from Chelsea, the woman with OCD who found this site by searching for “Patrick McGoohan” and “OCD.”

Word is that McGoohan turned down the role of James Bond because it would have meant kissing actresses he didn’t know well. Also that “Be seeing you” is something writers and producers came up with when Mr. McG. refused to shake hands with other actors.

It makes sense. He never did shake hands in “The Prisoner.” He’d just do his funky, little salute and say, “Be seeing you.” Maybe she has something there. I’ll have to do some research of my own. It would be nice to add him the list of famous people with OCD, along with likes of Abe Lincoln, Charles Darwin, Howie Mandel, and Howard Stern.

McGoohan doesn’t do interviews often. I just found one here. It’s from 1977.

I think we’re progressing too fast. I think that we should pull back and consolidate the things that we’ve discovered. — Patrick McGoohan 1977
