THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. The Cherry Blossom Affair 1965
This is the 39th 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.
UNCLE discovers that THRUSH Japan is making a new weapon that could change the balance of power. A defecting scientist, Robert Riordan, is bringing film of the device to UNCLE headquarters in New York. On the same aircraft is France Nuyen. Nuyen is a film maker also carrying a can of film.
At the New York airport, THRUSH agents make a move to retrieve the film from Riordan, killing him in the process. There is a mix up in the confusion and THRUSH instead grabs the film of Miss Nuyen. Nuyen picks up the film of the scientist and is in turn grabbed up by UNCLE. UNCLE watches the film on the weapon which appears able to start volcano's to erupt on cue.
UNCLE agents Robert Vaughn and David McCallum are sent to Japan to capture or destroy the THRUSH device. Of course Miss Nuyen gets involved in the plot. There are more than a few close calls for the trio as they attempt to do their job. The THRUSH types, led by Woodrow Parfrey and Jerry Fujikawa are great. Everyone in the episode looks like they are having a gas.
This is a very enjoyable way to spend 50 minutes in front of the tube. Miss Nuyen would marry the star of I SPY, Robert Culp a year later.
