U.N.C.L.E. agents Solo and Kuryakin try to stop a megalomaniac who thinks he's like Alexander The Great, commits offenses against the ten commandments and steals chemical weapons from the army in order to achieve world domination.
Classic short British comedy, full of stars, about two workmen delivering planks to a building site. This is done with music and a sort of "wordless dialogue" which consists of a few ... See full summary »

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.

Carol Lynley looking gorgeous in those mini skirts
I just got the Man From U.N.C.L.E. collection for Christmas. I have seen the movies before and knew they were all really good. I had forgotten how good the action, stories and humor are in the films. All 8 films are basically 2 part shows from the series. A few of the earlier films added some extra footage for the theatrical release. Solo & Illya are wonderful as always, especially Illya. I like David Mccallum a lot because he seems to be a real good guy in real life. I cannot finish the review without mentioning Carol Lynley. She never looked more beautiful in any show or film. And as another reviewer said, she wears some really short mini-skirts. She has maybe the best pair of legs in show business. Check her out in Once You Kiss a Stranger. It's available on the Warner Brothers Archive Site. She walks around in a green bikini for a good part of the film. She showed that she has a great looking body from top to bottom!
