A Favourite Scene in The Prisoner
When No.6 steals a taxi, and he and the Rook go about the Village in 'Checkmate,' stealing a surveillance camera. I'm always amused by the fact that than while the Rook tilts the camera down, the Supervisor is actually viewing the Village via that camera, and yet the effect of the Rook tilting the camera down is not projected onto the wall screen in the Control Room. Then a telehone is stolen, and electrical componants and a screw driver from the trailer of the electrics truck. In the electrics trucks trailer is a cardboard box with the "Ever Ready" batteries logo. Obviously a special import!
