User Reviews

The best of the "Uncle" movies.
26 June 2015 | by Hotwok2013See all my reviews

All told five full-length feature films were made by the MGM studio from spliced together episodes of The Man From Uncle. "The Spy In The Green Hat" is, in my opinion, the best of them. This is no small part due to Jack Palance who plays a terrific villain Louis Strago & Janet Leigh who plays Strago's secretary Miss Diketon. Janet Leigh was 39 years old when she played this role & looks really hot. Miss Diketon takes pleasure in killing people at her boss Strago's behest & Janet Leigh found herself a really juicy "bad girl" role here that she makes the most of. Despite her surname having lesbian overtones she is secretly in love with her boss Strago but his feelings for her are not reciprocated. In their very first scene together she is shown breathing heavily whilst massaging his back for which Strago rebukes her. Later he tries to get her transferred out of his department & she turns against him. The other female interest sees Leticia Roman playing Pia Monteri the daughter of an Italian Mafia mobster whom Napoleon Solo is almost forced into marrying. Later in the movie there is a very entertaining fight between her & Miss Diketon. All in all, this is not a movie to be taken too seriously, & it was never intended to be, but is very entertaining.
