THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. - The Off-Broadway Affair - 1966

This is the 69th 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 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.

UNCLE agent Robert Vaughn receives a phone call from Peggy Ann Taylor. Taylor is an actress at a New York theatre. She warns Vaughn about a plot by THRUSH to… She is cut off before she can finish. UNCLE boss Leo G Carroll sends Vaughn and David McCallum to investigate the matter. It seems UNCLE has a leak from their computer room and Carroll wants it stopped. He figures the call might have something to do with the leak.

Miss Taylor is found dead from an apparent suicide. The play she was in gets terrible reviews but is still sold out. That is because THRUSH has been using the theatre to dig through to UNCLE headquarters and set up a tap on the UNCLE computer.

The UNCLE types go undercover to see what is going on. Vaughn starts with the understudy of the dead lead actress. Said understudy, Shari Lewis, is a ball of fire as she gets replaced by Joan Huntington. Huntington is a THRUSH operative there to help out THRUSH boss, Leon Askin.

Of course there is the usual round of fist fights and guns being drawn and used before the matter is settled. Miss Lewis is better known to generations of kids as a ventriloquist, "Lamb Chop" and "Charlie Horse," are her two most famous puppet characters.

After several dreadful episodes, this one picks up the pace and speeds right along. Miss Lewis is the main reason, as she sings and dances her way through the episode. She even gets involved in the fist-fights with the THRUSH henchmen.
