Film Description

“Every government has its secret service branch: America, CIA; France, Deuxieme 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.”

An early success for action-adventure company ITC, Danger Man’s first series consisted of the 39 half-hour stories contained in this set. The programme charts the exploits of John Drake - an exemplary agent for British Intelligence who is sent into situations too tricky or dangerous for normal spies to undertake. Patrick McGoohan’s simmering, compelling performance catapulted him into movies and paved the way for his undeniable tour de force - The Prisoner.

Showcasing Edwin Astley’s memorable music, Danger Man features intriguing storylines from top writers Brian Clemens, Ian Stuart Black, Michael Pertwee and Ralph Smart, with key performances from guest stars Donald Pleasence, Patrick Wymark, Robert Shaw, Patrick Troughton, Warren Mitchell and Honor Blackman. One episode - The Vacation - is an early directorial credit for series star McGoohan.
