It's been a few years since i last watched Patrick McGoohans excellent series, 'The Prisoner'... certainly before i got into Orson Welles films, so i can't really comment on this...
but in light of recent discussion of the mutual admiration between Welles and McGoohan in the Moby Dick rehearsed thread, i just came across this review of the episode of The Prisoner called 'Dance Of The Dead':
"Dance of the Dead combines brainwashing and the legal system, in which a predominantly female cast (including a cat!) try to break Number 6 against the incongruous background of a carnival. After breaking the rules by taking a transistor radio from a body that washed up on the shore, Number 6 is subjected to a kangaroo trial and he discovers just how easily crowds can be swayed. He eludes the angry crowd of villagers and ends up in a room containing a teletype machine which, incongruously, seems to be the low-tech communication link between the Village and Number 1. This episode appears to be heavily influenced by Orson Welles, with the chase under the Town Hall lifted almost exactly from Welles's film of Kafka's "The Trial"."
p.s. happy new year to all!
