PRISONER EVENT

Event alert: The Unmutual and Quoit Media are hosting a special event at Elstree Studios to celebrate Patrick McGoohan (co-creator of the iconic series, The Prisoner). Not A Number: A Patrick McGoohan Retrospective will take place on Saturday, June 23rd, at Elstree Studios in Boremhamwood. Special guests will include actress Jane Merrow (Danger Man, The Prisoner/"Schizoid Man"), director John Hough (The Avengers, The Champions, Brass Target), actress Vera Day (Hell Drivers), and others. A rare chance to get inside Elstree, see props and costumes, and to hear stories from cast/crew of these 60s classics. Tickets and info here. From the press release: "Patrick McGoohan is regarded as one of the finest acting talents of the 20th Century. Starting out on the stage, with critically acclaimed appearances in works such as Brand and Serious Charge, he became Britain's highest paid television actor appearing as John Drake in ITC's Danger Man series before he co-created, starred in, and produced The Prisoner series - a landmark in TV history, still loved, respected and examined 50 years on. Appearing in countless films, stage plays, and television shows, Patrick McGoohan is a true TV visionary. The iconic Elstree Studios, where Patrick McGoohan filmed some of his work, including his first ever film appearance in The Dam Busters, will play host to this very special event to celebrate the man, his work, and his legacy. The event has been approved by the McGoohan family. Special guests, including those who worked with Patrick McGoohan, as well as those who have been inspired by his work, will take part in exclusive and interactive Q&A sessions. In addition, there will be official and exclusive screenings, signings, and other happenings, to celebrate the man and his work, including an unmissable display of original costumes, props, and memorabilia from The Prisoner, Danger Man, and McGoohan movies!" More info here. I hope some Spy Vibers can make it. Enjoy!

While you're there, you can also pick up the 20-page Fifty Years of the Prisoner program and The Prisoner: The Essential Guide. From the press release: "The first in a series of CDs of archive recordings with cast and crew of The Prisoner TV series. In 1990, Patrick McGoohan met with journalist Howard Foy to record an interview for issue one of 'The Box' magazine. It would turn out to be McGoohan's last in-depth interview regarding the series. What inspired the series? How did he find his co-stars? What were his 'essential seven' episodes?

BRITISH UNDERGROUND PRESS

New release: International Times founder/Indica Gallery/Bookshop owner Barry Miles and London gallery owner James Birch have created an exciting new book called British Underground Press of the Sixties. Essentially a catalog for the 2017 exhibit at A22 Gallery, the book celebrates the legacy of the UK counter-culture movement and features cover art from every issue of Britain's underground press in the 60s, along with comics and other material. The images are fascinating, revealing, and as co-curator James Birch described them, "visually explosive." I enjoy seeing elements of the various popular styles of the time such as Op Art, Art Nouveau, and psychedelia. If Spy Vibers ever wondered how the culture evolved during the decade and how the ideas of the youth movement were transmitted, you will do well to study the underground press and the efforts of people like Miles, Joe Boyd, and John "Hoppy" Hopkins. And you might already well have a foot in that territory if curiosity has led you The Beatles and Pink Floyd. Two editions are available: standard edition and a signed/boxed edition with artifacts (limited to 100). More info at British Underground Press and Rocket 88. From the press release: "In 1966 Barry Miles and John ‘Hoppy’ Hopkins decided to start a newspaper. They called it International Times and launched it in April. It was the first British underground newspaper, and began a news media revolution. This catalogue displays the covers of every British underground paper that launched in the 1960s: International Times, Oz, Friends/Frendz, Gandalf’s Garden, Black Dwarf and Ink. It also includes the comic books that grew out of the papers, and various examples of the graphics, ads, posters and flyers produced by each publication. There will be 100 limited edition Groovy Deluxe sets of the catalogue housed in a box with each with an original 1960s issue of IT , Oz and Friends, an original Oz Janis Jopiln poster and is also signed and numbered by the authors." Below: sample cover designs (from the web), the new book, and a video discussion with Miles and Birch. And stay tuned for news about another cool (signed!) book about the 1960s by Barry Miles! Enjoy! Related posts: Make Love in London, Paul At 7460s OverdrivePsychedelic Celluloid, Fluxus Film, Ivan Vaughan and The Beatles, Notes Behind the Curtain 1Notes Behind the Curtain 2Notes Behind the Curtain 3Notes Behind the Curtain 4, The Goldfinger Variations
