Personal Quote:

Patrick [McGoohan] gave me a photograph on the last day's filming of 'Fall Out' of me holding a bell and he'd written on it, 'Twinkle twinkle little star'. [Kanner smiles fondly] He [also] gave me a huge poster of the first shot taken by, I think, Apollo 7 of the Earth and he wrote, 'Til Death Do It Part - Patrick.'
