There Never Was A Number 1!
The question at the time was, how was
Patrick McGoohan going to wrap it up with regard to ‘Once Upon A Time,’ to
resolve the question of Number 1? According to ‘the Prisoner’ Film Librarian Tony
Sloman he once said that McGoohan was never going to resolve the question.
There never was a Number 1. Pat McGoohan was Number 1. We were all Number 1.
There was never a Number 1. The extra shots were never there on the original.
That was the end. Because ‘Once Upon A Time’ was originally just another
episode, being one of the early written episodes. The final scene at the end in
which the Supervisor asks Number 6 what he desires? To which Number 6 replies
"Number One" was later added
Makes you think... doesn't it especially
when in THEPRIS6NER 1,100 said “There is no Number One.
There has never been a Number One, and there never will be.”
