A Favourite Scene in The Prisoner
The Prisoner attempting to escape along the beach in a Village Taxi in 'Arrival.' Attacking the two Guardians, driving off, only the be confronted by the white membranic mass of the Village Guardian. It is a fine action sequence.
It's just as well the sand is hard at certain times in the estuary, otherwise this scene could not have been filmed. Well the Mini-Moke is hardly an all terrain vehicle.
But what has always puzzled me is, what is on the beach that the Mini-Moke hits, making it jolt, throwing the Prisoner out of the vehicle and onto the sand?
