Photographic Print. The round house residence of Patrick McGoohan as Number 6 in the village, Portmeirion.
At Portmeirion, while filming a one off episode of the spy series,
Dangerman, the idea for The Prisoner was sparked off for the writer and
main character, Patrick McGoohan. Filming took place between 1966 and 1968.
Due to the clever design of the village, every step taken is a different
view, creating many perspectives, which has a magnifying effect and
this effect is further enhanced by film in The Prisoner. I saw a letter
in the Number 6 shop from Sir Clough Williams - Ellis who after seeing
the first rushes, wrote to thank Patrick McGoohan for enhancing the
village in this way and he also said, "When seen in colour at the local cinema, a performance he kindly
arranged, Portmeirion itself seemed, to me, at least, to steal the show
from its human cast." It is ironic that The Prisoner was filmed as an island because when Clough was first looking for a site to build his vision, originally he was looking for an island but when he saw Portmeirion he knew it was the right place.
Colours are as accurate as possible but may differ slightly due to
