The boxing scene between Mister X and the Polish giant Killer Kaminski who turned out to be Irish! A favourite scene perhaps because I took part in a re-enactment of the boxing match as Mister X, twice at Prisoner Conventions. The first time the ring was set up on the chessboard, hundreds of people stood watching. It was the first time the re-enactment had been performed. On the second occasion it rained heavily on the Sunday, and the re-enactment was performed in Hercules Hall. After the bout I remember meeting up with Frank Maher, Patrick McGoohan’s stunt double. Frank and I put an arm round each other’s shoulder, Frank said that was the first time he’d done that for a photograph. Frank was a true gentleman, and a gentle stuntman, he certainly enjoyed watching the re-enactment.
Be seeing you
