He was dressed similarly as the Captain of a cruise ship in "Columbo" some decades later! Not sure about shorts, maybe not in keeping with the dignity of the command position, but definitely a white naval uniform. Was Patrick ever in the navies (Royal or Merchant)?

The TV Episode " Night of April 14th" about the Titanic with Patrick Macnee is available on the "One step beyond" collection DVD:

Some poor reviews there. It sounds like some of those illicit "public domain" releases that are just converted from old home video tape recordings - putting a company logo on screen usually covers up the TV station ident.

He served in the Royal Navy during WW II from 1942 on, first as ordinary seaman, later as an officer.

Patrick appeared as guest star in many importants T.V. Shows. The most recently was Fraser. He played the father of a shakespearean actor.

Pat played Cecil Hedley, the father to the (awful) "Shakespearean actor", Derek Jacobi, who played Jackson Hedley. It was in the eighth season and was a very funny episode.

I can't believe that was a decade ago.

Patrick Macnee in Frasier was inspired casting, although I don't really like to see Brits in American shows.

I believe Kelsey Grammar is a huge Avengers fan, so having Pat on the show was a lovely tribute to that.

I love Frasier. It's a the most 'English' show ever made by Americans. Superbly written and beautifully acted. The Avengers references in Radio Wars was the cherry on the cake.

6 minutes 38 seconds in.

Frasier episode 8.12
Patrick Macnee at 15:30 - short but very funny
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgh_DYZWG24


I did an upload on my site for those who like the "evil" Patrick Macnee as Count Iblis (Battlestar Galactica).

And for those of you who are fans of Battlestar Galactica from 1978 might this be interesting. It's a Blooper with Patrick Macnee who spoke the original intro narration 1978 ( and was the voice of the Imperial leader); you should hear the "normal" intro first and listen then to the blooper.

For those of you who are able to watch the German TV station 3sat this might be interesting.
On sunday 27.3.2011 the TV channnel starts a Western day, showing classic westerns all over the day like films with John Wayne ...

The first film - early in the morning at 6.30 - is "Mission of danger" with Patrick Macnee (German version called "Feind im Rücken") as Colonel Trent.

Thanks ischtar! Do you have a copy of this program? I would be interested in acquiring a copy.

Here are some snapshots from the 8th season of "The Virginian". Pat Macnee plays a bad guy, who is kidnapping the owner of the Shiloh ranch.

It's insteresting to see that Patrick Macnee in not always one of the good guys in the Western series.
But that's not the case in the episode from Black saddle called "Client McQueen" from 1959.
Patrick Macnee plays Michael Kent, former Senator McQueen’s son in law. McQueens daughter says that her father is old and sick, might have a brain damage, so he is unable to take care of his land and ranch. Kent’s wife and the ruthless forman trie to take the ranch away from the old man by a tricked deed, while Kent believes, his father in law is insane, not realising that he is beiing used by the two for their plans. After some investigations of Clay, a friend of McQueen, Kent finds out the truth and gives the ranch back to his father in law.

If you're living in or near Dorset, this might be interesting:

LYME REGIS: Another chance to see 'All Over the Town' film

By Chris Boothroyd

FILM buffs will have the chance to see the 1949 film “All Over the Town”, made in Lyme Regis, at the Regent Cinema on the morning on Tuesday, May 31st.

With its outdoor scenes filmed in Lyme, this ‘gentle satire of provincial politics’ in a seaside town (Tormouth) beautifully evokes post-war Lyme Regis. Scenes and sights which today are familiar appear like old friends in slightly unexpected and nostalgic dress - instead of Tesco, for example, not even Woolworths, but a garage for the repair of all those black-only Fords ...

“All Over the Town’ stars Norman Wooland as Nat Hearn, returning to his reporter’s job on the Tormouth Clarion after the war. When circumstances conspire to give Nat a share in the business and the editor’s chair, and being upset that the paper has been compromising its integrity to satisfy local businessmen, he radically alters its editorial policy. His stance brings him into conflict with local politicians and strains his romance with Sally Thorpe, played by Sarah Churchill (pictured).

Stanley Baker (Zulu) and Patrick MacNee (The Avengers TV series) make early appearances in the film.

“All Over the Town” goes well beyond any cliché about the honest newsman standing up to a corrupt world. It deals with the discrimination faced by returning servicemen and women, and with the tensions between tradition and change after the war; it examines the nature of the social and political order in a settled provincial community at a time when social upheaval is not only in the air but is embodied in the post-war Attlee government. A reviewer concluded that “With a vein of dry wit running throughout, this is a very good picture that more people should be aware of.”

That wasn’t possible in later years, for no usable print remained.

However, the negative survived at the National Film and Television Archive, and in 2005 the Lyme Regis Film Society came to the rescue, paying for a new print to be made and also for permission to show the film in Lyme Regis. The new print is kept safely in Lyme Regis Museum, along with contemporary posters and other related material. This print has been shown a couple of times at the Regent Cinema, the last occasion being around three years ago.

With the kind support and cooperation of Scott Cinemas and David Johnson, the cinema manager, all proceeds from this showing will be shared equally between the Town Mill Trust and the Marine Parade Shelters Fund. The costs of hiring the cinema are being generously covered by two sponsors, one for each of the two benefiting funds, so every penny from admissions will go to the two causes.

Tickets will be at normal cinema prices (Balcony: £6.50 / £5.00 concessions / £20 family; Stalls: £5.50 / £4.00 / £16.50). You can book in advance online (http://lymeregis.scottcinemas.co.uk), by phone (0871-230-3200) or in person at the cinema; or you can buy your ticket on the day. Coffee and cake will be available at modest cost from 10.15 am, with an opportunity to look at the exhibition material kindly loaned by the museum. The film will start at 11.00 and finish at 12.30.
