John Drake - Another In-Joke?
So, John Dake doesn't appear in the Prisoner eh! Well this is actor John Drake, seen here as the bowler in the cricket match scene during The Girl Who Was Death. The film location used for the cricket match was at Eltisely in Cambridgeshire. The close-up shots of Patrick McGoohan were done in a field behind a back-lot at MGM studios.
Interestingly enough Meopham in Kent is also listed as a film location for the cricket match, but that is a fallacy. True, a few frames of film of a cricket match at Meophem were edited into the cricketing scenes for The Girl Who Was Death, but no actual filming was done at Meopham. BCNU
