THE MAN FROM UNCLE The Apple a Day Affair - 1967
This is the 86th episode of 1964 to 1968 spy series, THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. The series ran for a total of 105 episodes. The first season was filmed in black and white with the remainder shot in colour. Robert Vaughn plays agent Napoleon Solo while David McCallum plays Illya Kuryakin. Leo G Carroll plays Mister Waverly, the boss of the secret agency known as U.N.C.L.E. (United Network Command for Law & Enforcement) UNCLE's main enemy is THRUSH, an organization out to take over the planet.
This one revolves around UNCLE out to discover why THRUSH is using a process to change apples into explosives. Yes, apples into boom devices. THURSH is planning on placing these near an atomic site and cause a chain reaction. They hope to start another world war. THRUSH plans on taking over after the destruction.
I would swear they made this one up as they went along. Anyways, UNCLE agents David McCallum and Robert Vaughn are soon on the hunt for the nefarious THRUSH types. The trail leads them down south to hill-billie country.
The boys are soon in trouble with the local law who of course works for THRUSH. The main villain of the piece is Robert Emhardt making his second appearance in the series. Of course there is the mandatory blonde, Jeannine Riley as a backwoods gal looking for a husband. Again, there is the captures, escapes, gun fights before it all ends with a big bang as the UNCLE boys destroy the explosive apples. The THRUSH henchmen all seem to be the worst trained shots on the planet.
As silly as this one is, there is the odd genuine chuckle sprinkled throughout.
