THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. – The Project Deephole Affair - 1966

This is the 55th 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) Their main enemy is THRUSH, an organization out to take over the planet.

UNCLE agents Robert Vaughn and David McCallum are assigned to bring in a scientist, Ralph J Rose, into UNCLE headquarters. There is a problem though, THRUSH types have the hotel where Rose is stashed, surrounded. They want to get their grimy hands on the man as well. In charge of the THRUSH crew is Barbara Bouchet.

UNCLE gets a bit of good luck when hotel guest, Jack Weston, tries to skip on his bill by sneaking down a fire escape to the alley. The THRUSH types mistake Weston for the scientist, Rose. They shoot Weston with a knock out dart intending to capture him. But they are foiled when UNCLE reinforcements arrive. Uncle instead grabs up the man.

UNCLE now decides to use Weston as bait to draw out THRUSH. UNCLE wants to know why THRUSH is after the scientist. They send Weston to the same conference Rose was to attend. THURSH bites at the bait, and soon have Weston and his guard, David McCallum under lock and key.

Now the big THRUSH boss (in more ways than one) shows up. The man, Leon Askin is drilling a hole down into the lower part of the San Andreas fault line. He intends to plant a huge bomb and drop California into the sea. He needs help getting his drill alignment just right. That is why they were after geologist Rose.

Weston now come clean and tells Askin that he is not the man THRUSH thinks he is. Of course the villains do not believe him and threaten to kill McCallum if he refuses to help. Weston agrees to do what he can, and goes over the blueprints. He gives the drillers new instruction on setting the angle etc.

What happen is the drill hits a pocket of oil and out it comes a gushing. At the same time, Robert Vaughn does the nick of time rescue. The nasty THRUSH agents are killed or captured. This includes the drop dead looker, Bouchet.

This one is a fun episode which has Bouchet going by the moniker, Narcissus Darling. Bouchet would later play Miss Moneypenny in the 1967 James Bond spoof, CASINO ROYALE. STAR TREK fans will recall her from the episode, "By any other Name", Leon Askin was known to a generation of TV watchers as General Albert Burkhalter in the long running comedy, HOGAN'S HEROES.
