User Reviews

An exciting confrontation of two fictional international spy rings.
10 October 2014 | by (working in Movieland) – See all my reviews

*Spoiler/plot- "The Deadly Games Affair", Man from U.N.C.L.E. THrush wants to capture a Natzi scientist who has learned the secret of eternal life and plans to use it on Adolf Hitler's frozen corpse.

*Special Stars- Regulars: Leo G. Carroll, Robert Vaughn, David McCallum. Alexander Scourby, Janine Gray.

*Theme- At the right time, all things should die.

*Trivia/location/goofs- B & W. The character of Janine Gray was supposed to be a re-occurring THRUSH villianess to play against Napoleon Solo until it was nixed. I thought it was a good idea and good role chemistry between them.Shot at MGM studio lot and back-lot, now gone. The ancient SS officer man (Felix Locher) in the opening teaser is played by an actor who is Jon "South Sea Island' Hall's real father.

*Emotion- An exciting confrontation of two fictional international spy rings with many spy gadgets, cars, guns, and beautiful women to keep the viewer interested in the plot. Almost an 'exploitation' genre of the spy plot from a major weekly TV show of the early 60's times.

*Based On- The TV show spy craze of the early 60's.
