Copies of these magazines are missing from the Canterbury in Number 6’s Village cottage, perhaps they were seen to be superfluous to requirements being publications of the outside World. But that fact doesn’t stop magazines such as ‘Queen’ appearing in the newspaper rack in the General Stores. Perhaps Number 2 should have a word with the Shopkeeper about the type of magazines he stocks. And at the same time he could have a word with the woman who is reading what appears to be a car magazine. That’s certainly not a Village Mini-Moke in the picture!
And while we’re about it. What’s actress Judy Geeson and actor David Hemmings doing on the front cover of ‘Village Weekly seeen in the newspaper rack in the General Sroes? At the time ‘the Prisoner’ was being produced Judy Geeson and David Hemmings were in the 1967 film ‘Blowup.’

Unless it's as an extra Judy Geeson wasn't in 'Blow-Up'ReplyDelete
Thank you for the correction. I haven't seen 'Blowup' in years and years. I logged onto a couple of websites and both credited Judy Geeson as being in 'Blowup' as the character Angela Rivers. So I checked that out, only to find Judy Geeson credited as Angela Rivers in the film 'Berserk.'
So I then looked to see if Judy Geeson and David Hemmings had appeared in a film together, they hadn't. Which makes the picture all that more puzzling. Unless it was simply two separate pictures put
together as one for The Village Journal. Of course it could have been a news item and nothing to do with a film.
Very kind regards
An interesting find, although, one can say, with no intention by the producers. "Blow Up". As it is about the grain of the photographic film exposed and magniffied to the indiscernible or unidentifiable as much as it is about the "grain" of reality perception in general. And "The Prisoner" can be read as a text about mental states and mental reality. Further exploration certainly needed. - BCNU!ReplyDelete
You have drawn an interesting parallel between 'Blowup' and 'the Prisoner.' As you say, further exploration certainly needed.
Very best regards
