Goofs

There is an airport shot titled on screen as being Tehran, Iran, however dominating the shot is a Lockheed Electra aircraft of TEAL (Tasman Empire Airways Limited), a New Zealand airline and forerunner to Air NZ. That airline never flew further west from NZ than Australia and would never have tried flying thousands of miles to the Middle East using such a relatively short range turboprop aircraft. See more »

My favourite Uncle
29 August 2001 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Some episodes of this show have dated badly but this two-parter is still pacy and highly entertaining. U.N.C.L.E. is pitted against, not one, but two megalomaniac supervillains intent on world domination. When the first one perishes, the other takes over (sort of like a relay race). Bradford Dillman is great fun as the pompous baddy, the ultimate failure of his plans greeted with a hopeless shrug by his ageing guru (John Carradine). The climax is typical race-against-time stuff but is staged and scored with great energy. Recommended!
