spy gadgets, cars, guns, and beautiful women
12 August 2013 | by (working in Movieland) – See all my reviews

Man from UNCLE, 1964. *Spoiler/plot- The Quadripartie Affair, 1964. One smell of this new gas weapon turns you into a 'whipering rabbit' full of fear. THRUSH's new weapon is being used against UNCLE.

*Special Stars- Robert Vaughn, David McCallum, Leo G. Carrol, Anne Francis, Jill Irleand, Roger C. Carmel.

*Theme- Ethical lawmen will put things right.

*Trivia/location/goofs- B & W. TV show. The mountain scenes were shot in the Malibu park region of the coastal Santa Monica mountain range. A weaker spin-off TV show, 'The Girl from UNCLE' starring Stephanie Powers and Rex Harrison's son, Noel.

*Emotion- An exciting confrontation of two fictional international spy rings with many spy gadgets, cars, guns, and beautiful women to keep the viewer interested in the plot. Almost an 'exploitation' genre of the spy plot from a major weekly TV show of the early 60's times.

*Based On- James Bond and spy films and show of the early 60's.
