THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. –The Virtue Affair – 1965

This is the 40th 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 discovers that a descendant of the original Robspierre, plans on destroying all of France's vineyards. The man, Ronald Long, is as mad as a hatter and plans on using a nuclear armed missile to do the job. UNCLE agents Robert Vaughn and David McCallum are sent in to straighten the man out.

This one is not one of the series better efforts, with the cast looking lost at sea without any oars. Oh, well, one can't have a winner every episode.
