Did You Know?


Actor Bill Dana makes a cameo appearance as a man-in-the-street. He is a brother of series' composer/conductor Irving Szathmary. See more »


If sound travels at 1,100 feet per second, and Control Headquarters is 10 miles from the car wash (52,800 feet, one mile is 5,280 feet), it would take the sonic boom 48 seconds to reach Control Headquarters. It took only a couple of seconds after the Kaos agent pushed the firing button. See more »


Maxwell Smart: I must be getting old, 99.
# 99: Why do you say that?
Maxwell Smart: To fall for the old hideout under the car-wash trick.

Don't Cry for Me Argentina
16 November 2007 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Okay episode has KAOS threatening to destroy New York City with a new sonic boom machine unless the US pays them $50 million dollars. The trail leads Max and 99 (still driving the red Sunbeam Tiger) to a car wash where they are captured by Billet (Farley Granger) and his henchman Gaucho (Alex Rocco). To mislead CONTROL they blindfold Max and 99 and try to convince them they have been taken to Argentina (it seems it would be easier to actually take them to Argentina, but that's quibbling--its a funny sequence). Although some of the story is a little sloppy (Billet's sudden wish to destroy Hollywood goes nowhere) Granger is pretty funny as the washed up actor turned KAOS agent, and Rocco also shines in his brief time on screen. Platt gets a wonderful joke about ordering a invasion of Argentina and having to explain it to the President later. Bill Dana, who co-starred with Adams in "the Bill Dana Show" and made a career out of playing Hispanic Jose Jimanez, has a nice cameo that is ONLY funny if you know that information. I did, so it was. Adams is solid and has quite a battle in the car wash and check out Feldon in those go-go boots! Oh mama!
