Will Kuluva, playing a THRUSH chieftain, originally played the chief of UNCLE in the pilot episode "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.: The Vulcan Affair (#1.1)" (1964)(scenes deleted); and in the re-edited film version of that pilot episode that was released to theaters ("To Trap A Spy"). See more »
In an overhead shot of the chase scene at the beginning of the film, the lower part of the helicopter filming the action is clearly visible. See more »
Others here have covered the storyline most adequately, I'm just going to pose a question about 'The Spy in the Green Hat'! In a 1967 Australian movie magazine, which has a 2 page spread on this film, it states that unlike the other U.N.C.L.E. films, this one was made specifically for a theatrical release, therefore had a bigger budget than usual ,and may also account for it being a bit more 'risque' than the others? If this is so, was it filmed in widescreen? Although the IMDb states the films were in 1.85 aspect, this is clearly not so for the ones made up from 2 part television episodes, and the five that have been put out on DVD, are only in 4.3 aspect! If this film was indeed made for a cinema release, could it be the only U.N.C.L.E. film actually filmed in widescreen? Guess we wont know until they see fit to release it on DVD? Perhaps the mooted big screen remake of 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' starring George Clooney, will renew interest in the originals? Here's hoping!
