A Favourite Scene In The Prisoner

   “The atmosphere here is very different here from what it was elsewhere.”
    What’s Number 6 talking about? It’s certainly not the password, but it sounds like a password, or a recognition sentence, Like “It’s hot enough for June,” and the reply, “But you should have been here last September.”
  The guardian in red then asks “What’s the password?
   “Gemini” Number 6 responds.
   “That’s not the password,”
   And neither it is to them, obviously Number2 had not briefed them on the Gemini password. But then Gemini is a password between Number 6 and Number 2 alone, so that Number 2 would be able to distinguish between the two 6’s. There was no need for anyone else to know it. 

   Number 6 stands victorious having vanquished his two adversaries in a fist-fight. Although it has to be said that the punches thrown in the fight sequence of this scene are atrocious, never come even close, and if the stunt sequence is looked at frame by frame, the punches thrown actually miss by a mile! But that does not stop it from being one of my favourite scenes in ‘the Prisoner,’ even though for an outdoor scene it does look very “indoors!”

Be seeing you
