THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. - SEASON 1 EPISODE GUIDE

1.  The Vulcan Affair

September 22, 1964

"Thrush kills people like people kill flies. A careless gesture.
A flick of the wrist."

- Napoleon Solo

After a THRUSH attempt to kill Waverly is thwarted, Solo is assigned to prevent the assassination of a visiting African premier (William Marshall) at the hands of Andrew Vulcan (Fritz Weaver), and with the help of a housewife (Patricia Crowley) he learns that the premier himself is allied with THRUSH and plans to kill his two top aides (Ivan Dixon and Rupert Crosse) in a fake accident.

Director:  Don Medford  Writer:  Sam Rolfe 

Guest starring:  Ivan Dixon, Victoria Shaw, Eric Berry, William Marshall, Fritz Weaver, Pat Crowley, Rupert Crosse, Billy Corcoran

To Trap a Spy is the feature-length film version of the pilot episode of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. starring Robert Vaughn and David McCallum. It is the third and longest version of the same story. The original pilot "Solo" was filmed in color and, as was standard at the time for U.S. network television shows, shown to network executives to gain their approval for a series. After the series was ordered the pilot episode was edited down to fit a one-hour timeslot, modified somewhat to substitute Leo G. Carroll's character Alexander Waverley for that of Mr. Allison (played by Will Kuluva), and broadcast in black and white (as was the rest of the first season of the show). The movie version started with the color pilot footage, added in additional footage and subplots (also in color, and including a new subplot featuring the actress Luciana Paluzzi), and was first released in Hong Kong in late 1964 and later shown in the U.S. as a double feature with The Spy with My Face in early 1966. In the UK it was originally released as a support feature to the James Garner/Julie Andrews comedy The Americanization of Emily in 1965, but its release coincided with the broadcast of the series. It later appeared as a top billed feature in many cinemas.

Solo, the original Man from U.N.C.L.E. pilot was released as the theatrical feature, To Trap A Spy. To recover costs for the pilot, MGM shot several additional scenes with actress Luciana Paluzzi as a WASP agent trying to seduce and kill Napoleon Solo to get the running time up to about 90 minutes. The pilot aired on TV (in black and white) as The Vulcan Affair, with several changes including reshooting all the scenes with the head of U.N.C.L.E., who was recast, and dubbing THRUSH into everyone's dialogue to replace WASP as the name of the enemy organization.

- Serena

"Oh, now, you remember, sweet, that international band of renegades that want to rule the world. Thrush, you know, where you pick up your paycheck every week."

- Napoleon Solo

"Oh, we work strictly on commission."

- Serena

THRUSH creates a double for Solo, and with the seductive aid of Serena (Senta Berger), Darius Two (Michael Evans) kidnaps Solo and substitutes the phony into U.N.C.L.E.'s efforts to transport the code to a secret new weapon. Illya and stewardess Sandy Wister (Sharon Farrell) eventually realize a switch has been made, and the real Solo escapes and in a climatic scene battles "himself". This episode where shot with the intention of making "THE SPY WITH MY FACE" a foreign theatrical film.

Director: John Newland, Writer: Clyde Ware

Guest starring: Senta Berger, Harold Gould, Michael Evans, Sharon Farrell

The Spy with My Face is a 1965 spy-fi spy film based on The Man from U.N.C.L.E. television series. Robert Vaughn and David McCallum reprised their roles as secret agents Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin respectively. THRUSH tries to steal a super weapon by substituting a double for Solo.

It is the second U.N.C.L.E. film, consisting of additional footage filmed and added to the November 1964 TV episode "The Double Affair". Directed by John Newland, the film also was released to theaters in the United States in 1966 as a double feature with To Trap a Spy. "Alpine" sequences were filmed at the Griffith Park Observatory in California.

Sequences added to the original The Double Affair episode for the feature film were reused in The Four-Steps Affair and The Dippy Blonde Affair episodes of the series.

Filming for what would be edited into both the episode "The Double Affair" as well as the feature "The Spy with My Face" was begun in August 1964. All the scenes were filmed in color, although the TV version was broadcast in black and white. The movie edit premiered in London in August, 1965. The film was advertised in the U.K. as a "Mr. Solo" adventure rather than a tie-in to "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.", but during its two-month run the series became a top-rated show in the U.K.

Director: Vincent McEveety, Writer: Henry Sharp, John W. Bloch

Guest starring: Marta Kristen, John Banner, Alexander Lockwood

Seen in the background on the wall of the underwater laboratory are the semi-circular/crescent light panels used in Morbius' laboratory in the film Forbidden Planet. These same light panels can be seen now and then in other films and television shows of this period.

The original soundtrack had the word "Freon" in it, and after the episode wrapped, it was found to be a trademark owned by DuPont. So another actor was brought in to dub the word "hydro" in its place. This is especially obvious with John Banner, since no attempt was made to match the sound with Banner's German accent.

Guest star Marta Kristen is best remembered for her role of Judy Robinson in the Lost in Space (1965) TV series. John Banner, achieved television immortality for his portrayal of the Luftwaffe prison-camp guard Sergeant Schultz in the TV series Hogan's Heroes (1965).

Director: Sherman Marks, Writer: Alan Caillou

Guest starring: Susan Oliver, Paul Lambert, Pat Harrington Jr.

In the opening credits, Leo G. Carroll is credited twice. The first is his usual series credit for his role as "Mr Alexander Waverly", followed immediately by a second credit for his role in this episode playing Waverly's imperiled cousin, "Quentin Lester Baldwin".

While in the car after being chased by the Dobermans, Ms Baldwin asks "Where to, now?" To which Illya replies "Up wind". If you were trying to get away from the dogs, you would want to go 'down wind'. Going up wind, the dogs would keep your scent and be able to follow. After he is attacked by the two Dobermans, Illya supplies the dog expert with two photographs supposedly of two different dogs.
