No need to be melodramatic my dear.
15 October 2018 | by seivadchSee all my reviews

That line from Randolph ( Herbert Lom ) to Amanda ( Joan Crawford ) defines this film and probably the whole Man from U.N.C.L.E series.

A Stella cast join Solo and Kuryakin for another romp through the 60s world of spies, kitsch and groovy music. Culled from The 5 Daughters Affair it is a delight from start to finish. And for me is the best of all the Uncle films.

As others have mentioned, there are many future Bond references here. The Auto-gyro, the ski chase, Telly Savalas & Curd Jürgens. However it should be remembered the character Napoleon Solo was invented by Ian Fleming who died in 1964.

And when a father is not available, the next best thing is an Uncle.
