A Favourite Moment in The Prisoner
Number 2, Patrick Cargill, sticks the point of the blade of his sword to the forehead of Number 6, in fact the point of the blade leaves an indentation. You can see in the Prisoner's eyes that there is going to be payback for this.
I have often wondered why Number 2 felt the need to have such a weapon as a swordstick, or in this case a shootingstick sword, and how he actually smuggled it into the Village undetected?
Footnote: I wonder how Pat McGoohan felt about Patrick Cargill prodding him so hard?
Be seeing you
