Day #21,790

Walk km 8293-8295: running errands
Walk km 8295-8299: seawalk along False Creek

Movie #1776: Hell Drivers (1957, Cy Endfield)

In which Patrick McGoohan is #3!
Actually, a great truck driving movie with the cream of the crop of British actors. Stanley Baker stars but included in the cast are Sid James, Sean Connery, David McCallum and Patrick McGoohan. Baker is #13 and McGoohan is #1 but there's a big switcheroo at the end when Baker becomes #1 and McGoohan thinks he's #3 but really he's #13. One mystery about "The Prisoner" solved!
This one comes courtesy of "itvnow" on YouTube. Looks like we've got another source for British films. This is even in the correct aspect ratio although it seems a few minutes short of the original running time.
