Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin are the two agents of the United Network Command for Law Enforcement, who fight evil (primarily an organization of Bad people called, THRUSH) and use charm, wit, and a never ending assortment of gadgets. Ran for 4 years. Written by

The name Illya Kuryakin comes from a Broadway play written and directed by Jules Dassin. "Ilya Darling" is Dassin's musical adaptation of his earlier film "Never on Sunday," or in Greek "Pote tin Kyriaki". The irony lies in the fact that the Kuryakin character is Russian and Dassin was blacklisted for years as a suspected Communist. See more »
Throughout the run of the series there was a large globe of the world used in the UNCLE office. However, it didn't appear to be current as it seemed to be from the middle of WW II. The colors for Europe seemed to reflect the conquests by the Axis powers, as well as the occupation of parts of China and southeast Asia by Japan. See more »
[calling on the intercom]
Illya, we have a situation here that needs your special talents. Are you free?
No man is free who works for a living. But, I'm available.

Watching a "Christmas Carol" and seeing Leo G. Carroll, more or less made me remember the "Man from U.N.C.L.E.". Napoleon Solo, in my humble opinion, was the only other spy who could seriously rival Sean Connery. Vaugn was not only kool and suave, but handsome and cunning, much like James Bond except that Napoleon Solo had a quite different style. Illya Kuryakin, aka David Mcallum, was excellent as the right hand man for solo and was the first time I had seen an intelligent Russian portrayed on the screen. Although I had previously seen Mcallum in "The Great Escape". Finally, Leo G. Carroll gave a commanding performance as Mr. Waverly, a man who had complete control over his agents yet had a fatherly kind of feel. But, hey, you all know this and now back to the movies!
