Storyline

Someone is using cats in experiments to develop a machine that can reverse the aging process, meanwhile a famous scientist (Dr Lancer) has gone missing, only for him to reappear looking 30 years younger. UNCLE agents Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin are sent to investigate the plot in Europe - Illya is sent to London to discover who is abducting cats while Solo travels to Paris where Dr Lancer's daughter is working as a fashion model. They uncover a plot by female members of the fashion business to develop the anti-aging machine for their own use, however the suave THRUSH agent Jordin has other plans. Thus a race begins between UNCLE and THRUSH to take control of the machine. Written by Paul Hunter aka "Bob the Moo"

This Is The Worst Of 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Films
11 December 2015 | by jimdoyle111See all my reviews

It's interesting that so many of the reviews of the U.N.C.L.E. films are from Brits. The show was incredibly popular here in the 1960s and I can remember joining the U.N.C.L.E. organization set up by MGM (I still remember my number: 10472 Section 2 Operations And Enforcement and I am still at the ready in case I am ever called up for action) and you could also buy novels and annuals. There are a couple of good websites based on the show and there is an excellent book by Jon Heitland published in 1987. So there we were riding along on the crest of a spy wave and just having waved goodbye to "One Spy Too Many" which was released in February and then on 31 July 1966, "One Of Our Spies Is Missing" arrived in Glasgow and suddenly we went crashing to the ground. Here's what I thought...

'The Man From UNCLE' was still being made, but as there were so many imitators, the powers that be decided to change the format and make it more of a spoof (although there is no way they could outspoof TV's 'Get Smart') with the result that the new film at the Regal and Bedford, "One Of Our Spies Is Missing" was nowhere near as sharp and exciting as the previous efforts. It was a compilation of the two part episode 'The Bridge Of Lions Affair" which had been shown on American TV in February but was not going to be shown on British TV. David McCallum as Illya crawls around the streets of a very studio bound Soho looking for cats and Robert Vaughn is on the trail of Vera Miles who seems to know something about the formula that makes people much younger. It was a real disappointment for fans, and the title made no sense whatsoever in relation to the plot. To compound the poor quality, it played with "Hold On", which was a vehicle for Peter No one and Hermans Hermits to be chased by fans and be chosen as the first pop group to be launched into space, and they also launch into song including 'A Must To Avoid' which could describe this double bill. Poor, but their worst film was yet to come.
