The production used real equipment salvaged from 1963 on some of the sets. This specific set was used during two days of production but was an important sequence in the film. The specific scene wasn't revealed. See more »
The song Napoleon Solo listens to in the car, after his fall from the boat during the chasing scene, is "Che vuole questa musica stasera" by Peppino Gagliardi. The song was released in 1967, 4 years after the movie's setting. See more »
[Enters Napoleon's hotel room with bellhop carrying champagne bottle]
Good evening, Mr. Deveny. With compliments of the hotel. I'm sorry, it should have been brought up earlier.

That's a fine bottle of champagne. It'd be a shame to drink it alone.
[Unsure of what Napoleon means at first]

When I saw better than expected, I knew it would be good. But it was better than good, it was great.
Very witty, sexy movie. Take the humour of Sherlock (with Robert Downey Jr. & Jude law) and stick it in a bond movie- then you have The man from U.N.C.L.E. - I like bond movies, but I LOVED the man from uncle. It doesn't get boring, or drop at any point.
If you've read anything negative from critics Don't listen to what critics have to say, they don't like any kind of movie if it's not based on a true story.
It's certainly worth the price of admission, you'll be glad you saw it. I'm honestly hoping a second will be made.
