Guess that Movie Week 74

This week I have posted quotes from various movies, just tell me what movie the quote is from to get credit for the answer.

Here are the rules:
If you know or think you know an answer leave your guess in the comments section. As people guess I will grey it out and give them credit (using google to find the answers will disqualify you(...I know all and see all...), the person who has the most correct guesses each week will get a fun movie genius award to decorate their blog. Any person who wins 5 weeks (consecutive or non-consecutive) will earn a Movie Master award and must then refrain from guessing for 5 weeks.

And now on to the guessing!

Number 6 finally made his way off the island...

Patrick McGoohan passed away yesterday at the age of 80 and to celebrate the of a very cool actor here are 5 facts you may or may not have known about the man...


1. He was the first choice for the roles of Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings trilogy (which went to Ian McKellen) and Dumbledore in the Harry Potter films (which went to Richard Harris and later to Michael Gambon after Harris' death) but turned them down. He also turned down the role of James Bond in Live and Let Die.

2. He appeared as 4 different murderers on 4 different episodes of Columbo. Of those 4 episodes he directed 3 and was considered at one point as a replacement for Peter Falk when he wanted to leave the show.

3. He Liked to drink Irish whiskey at 217 bar in Santa Monica, owned by burlesque great Betty Rowland.

4. For 1967's The Prisoner, he sometimes used the name Joseph Serf for directing credits and Paddy Fitz for writing credits. Paddy is a nickname for Patrick while Fitz was derived from his mother's maiden name, Fitzpatrick.

5. Reprised his The Prisoner character, Number Six in a Simpsons episode The Computer Wore Menace Shoes.

It was love at first sight...sigh...
