Trivia

Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner played together in this show just prior to starting the original Star Trek series. Additionally, Joseph Sargent directed an early Trek episode, "The Corbomite Maneuver." See more »

Goofs

When the stabbed Charlie stumbles onto the staircase in the embassy, the words (ending in YL893) he says to Kurasov are obviously dubbed over as his mouth does not match what he is saying in the exact timing. See more »

Really nice seeing William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy, even on opposing sides, together in this episode.

Other than the fabulously dramatic "Judgment at Nuremberg," in 1961, did Werner Klemperer make a career as always being duped. In this UNCLE episode he plays an extremely dangerous official who is looking to move up quickly among the Soviet hierarchy with the prize of the first Secretariat in his evil mind. He is constantly putting down Nimoy, his subordinate, but of course, Nimoy has the last laugh at the episode's end.

The UNCLE team knows that the Klemperer character must be eliminated so they commandeer Shatner and Peggy Ann Garner to portray a couple involved in a fake gas that will put entire cities to sleep and when the people awake, they shall be totally subjugated.

Fun to watch and surprising to see Napoleon light up a Turkish cigarette.
