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.

Both Kuryakin (from U.N.C.L.E.) and Kingsley (the bad guy) have their own helicopters (Kingsley's has a large letter "K" on the front of the bubble). However, you can tell they used the same helicopter for both - both helicopters have the same aircraft registration number. See more »
The men from UNCLE are at it again. This time attempting to stop Barry Sullivan and company from wrecking the world.
Fans of Irwin Allen TV shows such as Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea and Lost In Space should get blast out of this film. Sutton Roley directed some of the best Irwin Allen TV hours, including Voyage's The Phantom Strikes, and Roley brings his very unusual directing talents to How To Steal The World.
In UNCLE, Roley puts the camera under glass tables or above boats at sea. Or up close to the actors. Even without seeing the credits, I always knew when Roley was directing a 1960s TV hour.
He actually caused Irwin Allen a head ache or two when he opened up Voyage's submarine Seaview set (which was a no, no) so he could get the camera closer to faces of the crew.
Away from the director, How To Steal The World is a fine film and I don't really understand the negative reviews here.
