BERNIE WILLIAMS 1943-2015
Yet more sad news has landed on The Unmutual Website's e-newsdesk with the sad announcement in Hollywood that Bernie Williams, who was Production Manager on "The Prisoner" died on 5th January at the age of only 72.
Much of what "The Prisoner" became was due to the wonderful vision and hard work of Williams, who was interviewed for the Carlton 35th Anniversary special DVD release and the Network 40th box set, including he and Patrick McGoohan creating the balloon version of Rover whilst looking at the skies for inspiration following the failure of the original Rover device.
It is hard to place into words the contribution that Bernie made to shaping and developing the series and TUW offers its sincerest sympathies to all who knew him at this sad time.
will also be fondly remembered for the fanastic work he did on films
such as "A Clockwork Orange" and "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels"
and many others, as producer after he moved to Hollywood in 1981. A
uniquely talented man.
