Caught On Camera
Is this the moment when Patrick McGoohan twisted his ankle whilst running along the beach at Portmeirion for the opening sequence of the Prisoner? Patrick was warned how soft the sand was, and how difficult it is to run on soft sand by his stunt double Frank Maher. But Patrick still demanded that he do the running on the beach for the opening sequence of the Prisoner. Needless to say, Patrick McGoohan turned, and twistd his ankle, and so it was left to sunt double for McGoohan, Frank Maher to finish the filming.
