It took me way too long to see this, but I’m glad I did.
As a technical masterpiece, Ingmar Bergman creates another cinematic genius, among many others. I’ve only seen The Seventh Seal before this, but it was emotionally wonderful.
Here’s the basic story: Bergman wrote and directed, where a young nurse named Alama is assigned to take care of an actress, Elisabet, who has suddenly become mute, even though she is seemingly healthy. Only one of them slowly unravels…
And it’s an Ingmar Bergman film. Can’t wait to watch The Hour of the Wolf, Wild Strawberries, The Passion of Anna, Through a Glass Darkly, etc.
Production still taken during the filming of ‘The Prisoner,’ a surreal counterculture spy drama that starred Patrick McGoohan (as Number Six) and ran on British television between September 29, 1967 and February 1, 1968.
Baby Gruenwald appeared in three episodes near the end of the run as the new Number Two, which always made him giggle because “number two” means poo.
