The Aliens arrive, or do They?

THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. – The Take me to your leader Affair -1966

This is the 75th 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.

This one is a slight improvement over the last episode. The presence of the rather built, Whitney Blake, and the pretty Nancy Sinatra help matters. Here we have a power mad industrialist (played by veteran character, Paul Lambert) trying to pull a fast one on the entire world. He has used electronic gear manufactured by his company to fake the arrival of aliens. He intends to have the so called aliens declare himself as the ruler of the entire planet.

Also in the mix is regular guest star, Woodrow Parfey. Parfay is in charge of the radio telescope that first announces the discovery of the alien craft. What he does not know is that Lambert has faked the whole thing. When he finds out, Parfey threatens to expose Lambert. This causes Lambert to kidnap Parfey's daughter, Nancy Sinatra, just to make sure of his cooperation.

Needless to say UNCLE agents David McCallum and Robert Vaughn end up in the middle. McCallum ends up locked up with Miss Sinatra somewhere in the southern US. Vaughn, out flying a helicopter is shot down by the villains into the sea. The lucky guy is saved by Whitney Blake. (Blake is the mandatory blonde for the episode)

Anyways, there are escapes, shootouts and a furious fist-fight aboard a fake alien spacecraft before all is settled. Several of the bad boys are dropped out a handy hatch.

Not great, but, by no means a waste of the viewer's time. Season three is really bad television taken as a whole, with only the odd episode rising above the drivel.

Whitney Blake had just finished a five year, 122 episode run on the popular HAZEL comedy series. Miss Sinatra was big at the time with several hit songs on the airwaves, BANG BANG and THESE BOOTS ARE MADE FOR WALKIN.
