Where’s The Crate?
a cave somewhere on the coast of Poland, Number and Nadia are sealed in a
crate. That crate is then sent on a 12 hour journey to London. First by road to Gdansk/Danzig, then
by ship to Copenhagen, by plane to London, and by road again from London airport to an office Number 6 knows
very well in London.
We are shown the crate with Number 6
and Nadia in it, being loaded onto a freighter in the port of Gdansk/Danzig,
and again as it’s loaded aboard a cargo plane at Copenhagen airport. In the top picture the lorry
is about to drive out of a lay-by, perhaps the driver felt the need for a
break, or a call of nature. But it is such a pity that production-wise they had
to use film of two different lorries for the same scene! Its just a pity no-one had the idea of
putting the crate on the back of the lorry as seen in the above picture, at
least then the picture would have been complete!
