The Prisoner Comment!

   Cameraman set dresser John Lageu recalledI remember we didn’t have enough room for the Jukebox corridor, so we had to build it in forced perspective. In other words, we built it to try and create distance. To do this, you build the set, say 10 feet across at the front and as you go to the back the width and height is decreased, so that the set may only be four or five feet wide by the time you reach the back. This has the effect that, if you were to walk down it, you would be doubled over by the time you reached the end, but when you actually see it, it looks like a full height and width corridor all the way along. This means, however, that we can’t make an actor walk all the way down!"

Be seeing you
