Ragnheiður Steindórsdóttir at home in Brávallagötu in Reykjavík. Photo taken by Ragnar Axelsson.
These scenes appear in the first episode, to be shown tonight: actor, Stuart Wilson kicks Steindór Hjörleifsson, who plays a Soviet agent. The photographs were taken by Ágúst Baldursson.
Here is one of the actors, George Sewell, along with the stand-in dummy, who later ‘ended his life’ in Dettifoss, but had previously danced with fishermen in Húsavík.
Stuart Wilson armed at the summer-house by the lake. Real guns were used during the filming, but in most cases with powder shot!
