A couple of years ago I rented from San Francisco's intensely cinephilic video store, Le Video, a feature length (90 minutes-plus) item called DANGER MAN, starring Patrick McGoohan. The interesting thing was that it had been shot in <color> and appeared to have been made in the time period between SECRET AGENT and THE PRISONER. It wasn't just a coupla shorter tv show segments stuck together back to back. It hung together, narratively, just like a movie.

Haven't ever seen any of the shorter, 30 minute DANGER MANs. Something to look forward to.
