The shot of Napoleon Solo used during the opening credit sequence (when his name is shown on screen) is taken from the meeting in Italy when he's talking to Gemma Lusso ( Arlene Martel). See more »
After Solo has been conscripted, Fasik is lecturing him and uses the words "insurgent legislature" which is obviously dubbed and mostly like by a different person as the sound of the voice is different from Fasik's. See more »
THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. The King of Knaves Affair - 1964
This is the 13th 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 B/W 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.
Agents Vaughn and McCallum are sent to Rome to see what the deposed leader of a Middle Eastern nation, Paul Stevens, is up to. It seems that the man is planning on returning to his home country by means of a counter-coup. Helping him are a collection of nasty villains and some recruited against their will, army types. Vaughn and McCallum are soon mixed up with the whole loonie tune operation. Helping them in the deal are personal from the UNCLE office in Rome.
This is hands down the most idiotic episode of any series that I've seen in a long time. I'm not sure if they were going for the comic, or just decided to film this terrible example of writing to same time and money.
The only saving grace here is that one of the guest stars is the exotic looking, Arline Martel. Miss Martel is the actress who played the Vulcan wife, T'pring, of Mr. Spock in the STAR TREK episode, AMOK TIME.
I like this series, but this one was really a chore to get through.
