GREAT piece! I had to reference this with Google as I'm not familiar with "The Prisoner"...or am I? my husband remembers this.
This piece has so much to say! You've illustrated the point so beautifully. Thanks for bringing your talent to our challenge! (Never late until the next Tuesday!)
Oh wow this is fun.Wonderful art.
wow...i like every bit of this post, from your great art down to the awesome quote. i wish they'd put the old Prisoner back on TV...the only thing i remember is the wacky white beach ball.
most excellent. loved the prisoner - do need some reruns and WHAT A QUOTE.love the concept that each of us are are prime numberspeace
cg: ahhh, those were the days.bev/sandy: Thanks.tom: Thanks! You know, "the truman show" was a remake of the Prisoner?! Wait, here comes Rover now........kimy: Also niceto be in our prime ; )
cool--i didn't know that
Aha, I've got some big catching up to do at the site. Where is that image of the couple from, BTW? Looks like some Hitchcock movie!
Ooooh, superb! You have such a brilliant sense of humour and the talent to illustrate it. Bravo.
The Prisoner is a great show, and I love the way you wove it into the underlying theme of this piece, Michael. Recently we had an excellent review of this classic series in the blogosphere by Roderick Heath:http://www.ferdyonfilms.com/?p=5277
Hi! C.M.,I must agree with the previous commenter's...What a "unique"collage. Unfortunately, I'am not familiar with the show the "Prisoner," but if it's on DVD (Box set?!?) I will seek it out to watch.Once again, thanks, for sharing!DeeDee ;-D
jafb: Do you really want to know? Since you asked, the photo was clipped from a little booklet entitled: Our Amazing Times, The Challenge and Meaning of the World Shaking Happenings of Our Day, 1947. One of those religious doom and gloom books, Always good collage findings in these ; )taluula: Thanks so much.sam: Thanks and did read the review and was great. No time to comment but will later.dd: Thanks for stopping by. Hope you like t, although there are a couple of episodes that weren't that good really. Overall though, a series that makes you think a little, at least when I was a kid.
I recently watched the 1978 film BLUE COLLAR which contains some of the same themes you express here, that is man's attempt to be more than just a number or a pod or a face in the crowd. How there is always a force trying to keep you down and in your place. Well done piece CM, one of my favorites!
john: Thanks. Will have to look into the film you mentioned. I've not heard of it.
