U.N.C.L.E. discovers that Wasp killer Andrew Vulcan plans to assassinate a visiting African leader, Premier Ashumen, while he's on a tour of Vulcan's factory. Napoleon Solo enlists the help of Vulcan's old girlfriend, Elaine May Donaldson, who pretends to be a rich widow and gets closer to Vulcan, trying to find out if her old friend really is the bad man that Solo says he is. At the same time, she also enjoys the life of luxury and wealth and finds it hard to accept that she has to go back to boring married life after the operation is over. The film is made from the first season episodes "The Vulcan Affair" (09/22/64) and "The Four Steps Affair" (02/22/65) from The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Written by

This film is a re-edited version of the pilot episode for The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (1964), plus footage from at least one other episode, with a number of changes. The famous character of Mr. Waverly is not in this film, for example. See more »
I am okay with the spy genre but I don't actually call myself a fan spy movies/TV shows. I am indeed a fan of 1960s adventure shows (Batman, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, QM's The Invaders, etc) and this is why I am drawn to the UNCLE movies. I also like Robert Vaughn.
To Trap A Spy is taken from the very early days of the UNCLE series and it has that nice TV pilot-feel.
Don't be turned off by this being just a TV episode re-edited into a movie...the dialogue, direction and sets are of motion picture standard! In fact, I like this more than many of the 007 feature films.
