"Nobody laughs at Stavros!"
21 August 2009 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Illya is in Greece, at a rendezvous with fellow U.N.C.L.E. agent Miss Prendergast ( Kay Elliott ). No sooner has he handed over a briefcase containing the latest top secret codes, than she is attacked by a thief called Manolakas ( George Keymas ). Illya intervenes, only to be gassed by the thief who then escapes, intending to sell the codes to Emile Savignon ( Jacques Roux ) of THRUSH Central.

Illya gives chase, but Manolakas is ambushed by ageing outlaw Stavros Macropalous ( Harold J. Stone ). The thief escapes again, but Illya is not so lucky. Thinking the codes worthless, he throws them away. He then tries to bargain with Mr.Waverly for Illya's return...

Never mind the writers, actors and directors, I reckon one of the worst things about Season 3 was Gerald Fried's music. This normally talented composer came up with some truly monstrous sounds, including the kazoos on 'The Hot Number Affair' and the pseudo-Greek twanging heard here. What a good thing there was never an U.N.C.L.E. adventure set in Wales, ( apart from John Oram's novel 'The Stone Cold Dead In The Market Affair' ) otherwise we'd have had a harp playing relentlessly over the action.

Harold J. Stone is the poor man's 'Zorba', laughing incessantly and generally acting as if he has stepped out of a third-rate village play. The plot, such as it is, hinges on mistaken identities ( Illya mistaken for Manolakas, Solo for Sauvignon, and then Mr.Waverly for Sauvigon ) and grows incredibly tiresome after twenty minutes.

Two things I liked; the late Kay Eliott's cameo as 'Miss Prendergast'. When this mousy woman talked of impersonating an exotic dancer in her last assignment, my jaw fell. The actress also gave a memorable appearance as 'Stella', the nagging wife in the 'Star Trek' episode 'I, Mudd'. The coda in which Mr.Waverly chooses to retreat to a cave rather than meet up again with an old flame is also funny. But overall this is about as appealing as a bowl of mouldy Moussaka.
