Trivia

When Kuryakin tells Solo he's going to drive off and get rid of the guard Solo jokingly salutes him. Solo salutes the British way with his palm facing outward, instead of the American way. This would imply that Solo is really Canadian, which is how he was originally conceived when the show was first being developed. See more »

Goofs
