Trivia

In an uncanny foreshadowing of his role in Tim Burton's film Ed Wood (1994), in this episode Martin Landau plays a Transylvanian Count, Ladislaus Zark, in full-on Bela Lugosi mode. See more »

Goofs

So-called "vampire" bats don't suck blood like vampires of legend. They inflict very small bites, mostly on sleeping animals, and then lap up the blood that oozes out. For Illya to have been seriously weakened by the bats in only a short time is almost impossible, and would have required an enormous number of very visible bite wounds. See more »

Landau Plays Lugosi Before Ed Wood
1 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode mixes Bridey Murphy with Count Dracula. Solo takes care of a girl from the Ozarks with E.S.P while Kuryakin finds himself a prisoner of Transyvanian Count Zark, who plans to disrupt air travel using trained bats to clog airport radar. Martin Landau, who plays Count Zark, had already perfected his Bela Lugosi role long before Ed Wood. Solo gets updates on what Kuryakin is doing from Clemancy. Kuryakin takes quite a bit of abuse from Zark's Frankenstein-like henchman. Watch for an in-joke as Solo and Clemancy watch the movie "One Spy Too Many," which was a compilation of the "The Alexander the Greater Affair." This episode is more fun than logical.
