Storyline

A mysterious U.S. industrialist, Mr. Alexander, steals a new type of nerve gas from the U.S. Army. He leaves behind a small tablet with the number eight on it. Solo and Kuryakin investigate, with the help of Alexander's ex-wife Tracey, who seeks Alexander to sign her final divorce papers. The trio finds Alexander's parents working like slaves at a Greece rock quarry with the number five painted all around. After freeing the parents (and avoiding Alexander's thugs), they travel to a temple where they are captured by Alexander. It turns out Alexander plans to take over an Asian nation, breaking each of the Ten Commandments along the way. Written by Bill Koenig

Trivia

One of the characters is a teacher named "Mr. Kavon." This is probably an in-joke, because there was a popular TV show at the time called Mr. Novak (1963) (Kavon spelled backwards), which was about a teacher. See more »

Goofs

Illya makes a mistake when talking about the Seventh Commandment. He says the 7th forbids, "coveting thy neighbor's wife." The Seventh is, "Thou shalt not commit adultery," and the Tenth is "Thou shalt not covet...thy neighbor's wife." See more »

Entertaining Even If Somewhat Silly.
9 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

Season 2 of "The Man From Uncle" kicked off in colour for the first time with "The Alexander The Greater Affair". Most of the Uncle stories are somewhat tongue-in-cheek & this one is certainly no exception. Rip Torn plays Alexander a crook who has conquered the financial world as opposed to his historical predecessor who conquered a large part of the known world. Our Uncle agents Napoleon Solo (the late Robert Vaughn) & Ilya Kuryakin (David McCallum) are engaged to bring him down a peg or two. From my point of view the best reason for watching this is to ogle the delectable Dorothy Provine who was a pretty good actress as well as being a knockout looker. She plays Tracey Alexander the ex-wife of our villainous money mogul who is also very interested in bringing him down. "The Man From Uncle" is very watchable as long as you don't take it too seriously.
