Alexander Waverly: Strange. Locked in this book is the secret of immortality, perhaps. Why do scientists always insist on keeping their notes in code?
Illya Kuryakin: Well they were able to decipher the notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci in a little less than three hundred years. That should offer us some hope.
Alexander Waverly: Well I'm afraid gentlemen, in my position and at my time of life, that's much too long to wait.

Cats to Kittens part 2
1 January 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. – The Bridge of Lions Affair – 1966 Pt - 2

This is the 50th 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 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) Their main enemy is THRUSH, an organization out to take over the planet.

This one is episode two of a two part story. The review will cover parts one and two.

UNCLE is out looking for a youth rejuvenation machine. They have photos of a scientist who looks 30 years younger than he is. Robert Vaughn is sent off to Paris to look into the matter. David McCallum is sent to London looking for why cats of all things are disappearing off the streets of London. (The cats play an important part later)

Both agents find that there searches lead to the same location. A lab ran by another scientist, Harry Davis. Davis works for Paris beauty salon owner Vera Miles. Miles is in love with a retired UK political type, Maurice Evans. The man is old and confined to a wheel car. Miles wants to give him the treatment.

Needless to say THRUSH finds out about the machine and sends a top man, Bernard Fox to grab the device. UNCLE and THRUSH types do the old cat and mouse thing as each tries to get the upper hand. Even UNCLE boss, Leo G Carroll gets into action on this assignment.

Plenty of red herrings abound with bodies piling up as both hit men and hit women ply their trade. All the plotting and such goes for nothing as the machine is destroyed and the only man who can operate it, Davis, is killed. Miss Miles also takes a bullet for true love. (The cats were being used by the machine to test the results.)

I wanted to like the two parts, but it really does not gel well. There were a bit too many story arcs that go nowhere. The screenplays for both episodes are based on the novel of the same name by Henry Slesar. James (Scotty) Doohan has a small bit in the first episode.
