"One of the best UNCLE films!"
2 March 2004 | by (Poole, Dorset) – See all my reviews

The Spy In The Green Hat was the first UNCLE film that was only released in the overseas market. The previous four outings had been released theatrically in America, but US audiences weren't prepared to pay to see in the cinema what they had already seen on television. The Spy In The Green Hat was made up from the season three two-parter "The Concrete Overcoat Affair", (episode 1: 25/11/1966), (episode 2: 2/12/1966). These were not transmitted in the countries where the film version was released so there it would be a completely new story. This was the case for most of the other UNCLE films.

Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuriyakin fail to capture Dr Von Kronen the world's most wanted Nazi criminal who joins forces with THRUSH agent Louis Strago (Jack Palance) in order to develop of series of missiles to divert the gulf stream thus altering the world's weather patterns and giving THRUSH what it always wanted - control of the world!

Out of the eight films released to cash in on the success of the TV series, The Spy In The Green Hat is probably one of the best. The supporting cast is good with Jack Palance on fanatical form as meglomaniac Louis Strago, Janet Leigh as his psychotic secretary and Eduardo Cianelli, Allen Jenkins and Jack La Rue are fun as the aging 1930's Italian gangsters who are pursuing Solo in order to force him to marry their young niece after he spent the night in her room hiding from Strago's henchmen. Robert Vaughn and David McCallam are their usual irreplacable selves and not forgetting the always reliable Leo G Carroll as UNCLE chief Mr Waverley.

The American TV version has been released on VHS in the UK but has long since been deleted. We can only hope for a DVD release in the future.
