THE MAN FROM UNCLE – The Hula Doll Affair - 1967

This is the 81st 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) UNCLE's main enemy is THRUSH, an organization out to take over the planet.

This one starts out with David McCallum witnessing a massive explosion at a Nevada A- bomb test site. The new explosive goes off once it hits 90 degrees. It only takes a small amount to devastate a large area. A small amount hidden in a Hula Doll is sent to UNLCE Headquarters by courier, while McCallum takes all the paper-work .

At the airport in New York, McCallum hooks up with fellow agent, Robert Vaughn. THRUSH is also on hand, and they make a bid to grab up McCallum and his briefcase. It is just a bit of good luck that allows the UNCLE agents to escape. The other courier however was not so lucky, and THRUSH now has a sample of the explosive.

The THRUSH bunch, are led by Jan Murray and Pat Harrington. (His third role in the series) The gag here is that Murray and Harrington are brothers who hate each other. Both are vying for the head of THRUSH New York.

There are the usual captures and escapes here, as well as the innocent female, Grace Gaynor, who gets dragged into the proceedings. There is also the brother's mother, Patsy Kelly who turns out to be a THRUSH boss.

This one is actually not bad, there are a few laughs spaced throughout the episode. I would prefer they played the series straight but this one, does work.

Check out the drop dead gorgeous Edy Williams in the first few minutes of the episode. Wow!
