A Nazi scientist is sprung from a German prison, with Solo and Kuryakin in pursuit. While the scientist escapes, one of the plotters is killed. Kuryakin impersonates the man and travels to South America. Solo goes to the continent separately, but cannot shake a woman photographer who had been on the scene when the scientist escaped. It turns out Thrush is financing the plot, which involves a mind-control ray, which is to be used on Washington just as the president is scheduled to speak before Congress. Written by
THRUSH aside, the men from U.N.C.L.E.'s other most frequently recurring adversaries were The Third Reich - embittered Nazis determined to avenge Hitler's death by taking over the world.
In this Milton S.Gelman-scripted episode, we get both Nazis and THRUSH working together. Scientist Von Etske ( Will Kuluva ) is sprung from a German prison when a mind-control device is passed onto him. Solo and Kuryakin give chase, but lose him. A photographer, Terry Cook ( Jusy Carne ) witnessed the break-out, but due to the device's radiation her pictures are ruined.
Von Etske is whisked off to an observatory in South America, where Marshal Gurnius ( George Macready ) runs a THRUSH-financed operation to construct a bigger version of the mind-control ray, intending to take over the mind of the American President as he makes a speech before a joint session of Congress. Gurnius next plans to use the device against THRUSH Central.
Luckily for U.N.C.L.E., Illya is a dead ringer for one of the Nazis and takes his place, while Solo and Terry try to break into the observatory via the back door...
Another solid episode, if one ignores the contrived plot device of Illya just happening to look like one of the bad guys. George Macready had appeared in the previous U.N.C.L.E. adventure about Nazis - Season 2's 'The Recollectors Affair', while British actress Judy Carne ( the 'sock it to me girl' of 'Rowan & Martin's 'Laugh-In' ) was also a familiar face, having been 'Salty Oliver' in another Season 2 episode ( 'The Ultimate Computer Affair' ). Will Kuluva, who plays 'Von Etske', was 'Mr.Allison' in the original U.N.C.L.E. pilot, and then 'Mr.Thaler' in the Season 3 two-parter 'The Concrete Overcoat Affair'.
The observatory was the same one in Season 1's 'The Double Affair', and the explosion that wrecks it came from the same episode.
