Did You Know?


Napoleon Solo: I tell you, old Granny, she was really unbelievable. She used to make everybody so uncomfortable. She was always stalking around and peering into corners. Locking doors, make sure that no one would steal in behind her. And would you believe it? Every night, before Granny went to sleep, she used to slash away underneath the bed with a poker looking for prowlers.
Angela: Was she ever lucky enough to find one?
Napoleon Solo: No. No, that was Granny's constant frustration. But she never quit looking.

THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. – The Four-Steps Affair – 1965

This is the 21st 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) Their main enemy is THRUSH, an organization out to take over the planet.

In this one, UNCLE agents Vaughn and McCallum are assigned to protect the young leader of a far eastern country. The boy, Michel Petit, is in the U.S. for some minor surgery. THRUSH types want to kill the lad so as to destabilize his country for a takeover.

Petit and his nurse, Susan Seaforth Hayes, are kidnapped by a bunch of THRUSH types led by Malachi Thorne. Thorne also happens to be Petit's official bodyguard. UNCLE tumbles to the double dealing Thorne and slap him in a cell. They later let Thorne escape hoping he will lead UNCLE to where Petit, Miss Hayes and Agent McCallum are being held.

The plan goes off with a few minor hic-ups, but everyone is rescued in the end. The THRUSH types are all captured or killed.

Hiding behind a beard in this episode, is guest star, Don Harron. Harron some will recall as series regular, "Charlie Farquharson" in the long running, HEE-HAW comedy series.

An enjoyable romp.
