IM INTERVIEW

SIX OF ONE: MAX HORA

   

"HE EVEN DIDN'T SAY 'BE SEEING YOU!'"

Max Hora lebte zwischen 1983 und 1998 in Portmeirion und betrieb das "PRISONER Information Centre", bekannt als PRISONER SHOP

nr6de: Max, nice to meet you! We met here during my first visit to Portmeirion in 1990, the 6th of July. At that time you were the runner of the PRISONER shop (aka "PRISONER Information Centre"). How long have you been involved with SIX OF ONE?

DIESES INTERVIEW AUF DEUTSCH

MH: Well, SIX OF ONE was started at the beginning of 1977 by David Barrie. And I joined in November 77, so SIX OF ONE had been in existence for about 10 months. I've been a member since November 77, so, that over 30 years, about 30 and a half years.

nr6de: A long time. What was your intention to come to the Village and to open the PRISONER shop?

DAVE BARRIE IM INTERVIEW
STEVE RAINES IM INTERVIEW

MH: From 1977 until 1982, that five years I was a member. We had conventions in 78, 79, there wasn't one in 1980. There was another one in 1981. So, I helped to organise the conventions. Then in 82 there was the convention in August of that year. And I managed to get the management of the Village to let me put a display into one of these shops down there, a PRISONER display, merchandising cloaks and blazers and things. A few weeks later they told me I could actually have a shop as a permanent, not a temporary thing. So they let me have the first PRISONER shop which was the Arches shop, that's now an ice-cream parlor... (yum, yum...). The following year, 1983, they let me have the Prisoner's house, the actual number 6. You say "Nummer 6...?" Number Six' house was my shop from the beginning of the 1983 season to 1998, so, 15 years, yeah.

nr6de: A very long time. Why, then, did you resign from your job... (lacht)?

MH: In 1998, after 15 years, we were told we wouldn't be able to have conventions any more. The management told us that they regarded the 1998 convention as the last one. Because they wouldn't be able to accomodate us after that because they had a lot more people. There's a big tour company I think that wanted to come every week, for six months from April to October. This tour company wanted to book the Village every week. We used to have our conventions in summer, right, the August, September time. So after 98 no more conventions.

We thought this is a bit unfair. Because we had been coming every year or almost every year for about 20 years. So, we'd have a bit of negotiation which took about a year or two with the management. And then in the year 2000 they told us we could come back, in 2001, as long as we had the conventions early, in other words in the spring, March or April, before the season started. As early as possible in the season.
So, in 2001 we came back in March and had a convention. And then we've had a convention in the spring almost every year, not quite but almost every year now in the spring. For about the last seven years we've been having spring conventions instead of summer conventions.

nr6de: Do you think there is a possibility of going back to the summer conventions?

MH: Unlikely. I'd like to go back to the summer conventions because the weather is much better. I mean, this year we've had some snow... (lacht). The first time we've ever had snow. In 30 years we had a lot of rain, you know, so this is the first time... The 2008 convention is unique because we actually had quite a bit of snow for a while today... But anyway, going to the summer would be nice if we can negotiate it but I think it's unlikely. Because we do have this problem with the big tour companies coming in in the summer.

nr6de: During the summer conventions there were many more members around...

MH: Yes. You may have seen on some of the previous videos, when we had the parades in the summer, the election parade and the chess game, there were a lot more people. Because obviously people are on holiday in the summer. So basically the summer is a good time, you get much better attendance. - But there we are. I mean we made progress, we are having conventions on a regular basis, that's a good thing.

nr6de: During your time in the PRISONER shop you met many people, cast and crew members...

MH: Yes. There were quite a few cast and crew who came to Portmeirion over the years. I kept visitors' books, so, anybody who was well known or PRISONER related I got them to sign the visitor's book. There was one incident, it's always in my mind, in July of 84.
I had a visitor in the shop. He was looking around the displays and he saw a photograph. And this visitor said to me "Could I buy that photograph? Because it shows me as a young man." That's what he said. I said to this gentleman, "were you an extra in THE PRISONER?" And he said, "Oh no, I was the producer. My name's David Tomblin..." (lacht). So, I failed to recognise the producer of THE PRISONER, David Tomblin.

I gave him the photograph free of charge. But in future after that I was always careful to look very carefully at everybody. Because, of course, you never know one day Patrick McGoohan might walk in... (gelächter). You see, it's very important that I recognise Patrick McGoohan. I wouldn't want to ask Patrick McGoohan, "Oh, excuse me, were you an extra in THE PRISONER...?" (gelächter). He might get cross. So, I'm always on the alert, I always have to make sure I recognise people...

nr6de: You did meet Patrick McGoohan but not in the Village...

MH: In 1982 SIX OF ONE was invited to take part in a television programme which was made in the city of Birmingham. Central Television were doing a series which looked back, looking back to previous years. And in 1982 they were looking back 14 years to 1968. And this show was called "Greatest Hits 1968". Because the PRISONER, the final episode had been shown in January, February of 68 in Britain, they decided to get Patrick McGoohan as a guest to be interviewed on this show. And Patrick McGoohan happened to be in Britain at the time. He was making a film called JAMAICA INN. Because of this he agreed to travel to Birmingham to be interviewed by Central Television. SIX OF ONE had about 30 members there. It was a big studio audience. McGoohan was interviewed for about five minutes by a presenter who was called Mike Smith. And Mike Smith asked Patrick McGoohan about THE PRISONER and particular about the final episode. He talked about the ending, the episode "Fall Out" which is rather unusual... (ha, ha).
Afterwards Patrick McGoohan signed a few autographs and we had a few photographs taken. And then he was off. Because he didn't want to stay around. He actually doesn't really like talking very much. He thought, well, having done the interview that's it, he's going. But he did actually stay for about five minutes. And I did actually get to shake his hand. I said to him, "Thank you very much for doing a great TV series". And he said, "All the very best to you, good bye"(gelächter).

That's all that Patrick McGoohan's ever spoken to me... "All the very best to you, good bye" (gelächter). He didn't even say "Be seeing you", he didn't even say "Wir sehen uns"... (gelächter). I haven't seen him since.
But he's still the Honorary President of SIX OF ONE. And we invite him every year, of course. He just had his 80th birthday. He's not very keen on traveling all the way from America to Britain. But we would like him to come to a convention if he's able to...

nr6de: In 1986 a German TV crew came here for their programme "Rund um Big Ben" (NDR), with Wolf von Lojewski. He interviewed you. You told him that you'd seen THE PRISONER about 50 or 60 times (zustimmendes nicken von MH). How many times have you been watching THE PRISONER altogether ever since?

MH: Well, I've probably seen all the episodes about 80 or 90 times. I don't think it's quite a hundred. Dozens, I've seen it several dozen times.

nr6de: What's your favourite episode?

MH: I think "Free For All", yes, and "Checkmate".

nr6de: Can you give a last word to our German audience in order to inspire them and make them come to Portmeirion?!

HORA'S PRISONER INFORMATION CENTRE IN 1991

MH: Oh, Portmeirion is a very nice place. Because it's got very unusual architecture. It's a unique place. You won't find anywhere else like Portmeirion. So, if you're a PRISONER fan or if you're not a PRISONER fan, please come and visit Portmeirion! You can stay in the Village, there are self-catering cottages like this one which is called "Government House". Please come to the Village if you'd like to. So I'll say, "Wir sehen uns!"

nr6de: Vielen dank! Wir sehen uns!
