Quotes

Napoleon Solo: [Solo contacts Kuryakin through the communication device] Solo here... Well how nice to hear from you after so long. Have that left-out feeling, do you?
Illya Kuryakin: Don't be cute. They almost buried me in the Tomb of the Unknown Spy. When I did manage to get to my feet it took me half an hour to find my trousers. Where are you... assuming that you do know where you are, of course.

THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. – The See Paris and Die Affair – 1965

This is the 22nd 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 white 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.

In this episode both UNCLE and THRUSH, are after a pair of cousins, Lloyd Bochner and Gerald Mohr. The pair robbed a huge diamond syndicate of an enormous amount of diamonds. They threaten to flood the marketplace with the diamonds if they are not paid one million a year in cash The syndicate pays off, not wanting the cousins to do as they threaten.

UNCLE wants to return the stones to the rightful owners, while THRUSH wants them to finance their evil plans. Working for the cousins is an undercover THRUSH agent, Alfred Ryder. Ryder's job is to find where Bochner and Mohr have hidden the stolen gems.

UNCLE agents Robert Vaughn and David McCallum talk an old flame of Bochner's into helping get the same info from Bochner. The woman, Katherine Hays, agrees and is soon in Paris as a club singer.

Bochner falls for the woman all over again and the trap is set. The trap is sprung early as THRUSH spoils matters by stealing the furniture where the diamonds are hidden. There is now a wild ride through the French countryside to retrieve the stones.

This is an entertaining episode with the MGM back lot being used as the backdrop for the real Paris. (Miss Hays would become the wife of actor Glenn Ford several years down the road)
