THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. – The Gazebo in the Maze Affair – 1965

This is the 27th 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.

This is an enjoyable romp through that fake Hollywood image of the English countryside. UNCLE agent David McCallum is captured George Sanders and whisked off to a castle in the UK. Sanders has a bone to pick with UNCLE. UNCLE had helped depose Sanders when he was a dictator of a small South American country. He wants some pay-back.

McCallum is locked up in a dungeon as bait to try and draw UNCLE into a rescue. UNCLE bites of course, and Agent Robert Vaughn is soon in the area. He is likewise gobbled up and thrown into the dungeon with pal, McCallum. Sanders' wants Vaughn to call their boss, Leo G. Carroll. Sanders' intends to kill Carroll to complete his revenge.

Joining Sanders in his plot is wife, Jeanette Nolan. The scene stealing Nolan is a blast as she takes charge of the torture etc. Bonnie Franklin, in an early role, plays Nolan's maid. Franklin tries to help the boys out but soon joins them as torture fodder.

The crew manage to pull an escape, then head off through a maze full of hidden traps and wild wolfs. Through various feats of daring etc, they finally turn the tables on Sanders and Nolan.

This is a real enjoyable episode that ranks right up there with, "The Never-Never Affair". Both were written by the same man, Dean Hargrove. The pace moves smoothly under the capable hand of actor, turned director, Alf Kjellin.
