"Get Smart" wastes a good villain in Duval (Marcel Hillaire) in part two by turning him into an idiot. After using horrible killers like Jack the Ripper and the Wolfman (George Sawaya), when he gets Max trapped in his museum, who does he turn to in order to catch the secret agent? Laurel (Jim MacGeorge) and Hardy (EJ Schuster) and W.C. Fields. Also, the wax Hitler that Max replaces MAY be his stuntman or stand-in, but full face, he doesn't look much like either 86 or Hitler.

99 gets a chance to try out her feminine wiles on Duval as she picks him up at a restaurant, but the scene feels flat and forced. Don;t know if they were trying to test out the idea of sending Max and 99 to other countries with this two-parter, but it didn't work.
