This is the 24th 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 episode, THRUSH is selling NATO information to the highest bidder at a Hong Kong location. UNCLE agents Vaughn and McCallum are sent out to the far-east to stop the sale. One of the items up for sale is a sample of the steel use in American ICBM nosecones.
Getting mixed up in the mess is ex-Army veteran, Glenn Corbett and the leggy Karen Sharpe as a Hong Kong undercover cop. The THRUSH baddies are played by Gavin McLeod, Irene Tsu and future Bond villain, Richard Kiel.
There is plenty of violence and the like in this fun episode. The pace is keep at a frantic pace by long time TV director, Al Ganzer.
