Editorial Reviews

Combine the spy-against-spy Cold War era with '60s cool and the result is the trend-setting series that became a cultural touchstone - and generated 8 Theatrical Movies derived from and expanding upon key episodes. Napoleon Solo (Robert Vaughn) and Illya Kuryakin (David McCallum) are intrepid U.N.C.L.E. agents who maintain tongue-in-cheek style as they confront the deadly schemes of THRUSH in the U.S. or anywhere else spy chief Mr. Waverly (Leo G. Carroll) sends his two top operatives. Guest stars caught up in the globetrotting intrigue include Joan Crawford, Janet Leigh, Vera Miles, Leslie Nielsen, Jack Palance, Eleanor Parker, Telly Savalas, Rip Torn and more.

Movies found on the set include:
To Trap a Spy (1965) Expanded version of the U.N.C.L.E. pilot (Solo aka The Vulcan Affair), includes the famous "too hot for TV" scenes shot with future Bond girl Luciana Paluzzi.
The Spy With My Face (1965) Expanded version of The Double Affair, in which a fake Solo wreaks havoc on an U.N.C.L.E. secret mission.
One Spy Too Many (1966) Expansion of season two's Alexander the Greater Affair, in which an ambitious industrialist (Rip Torn) sets out to conquer the world. With Yvonne (Batgirl) Craig.
The Spy in the Green Hat (1966) The Concrete Overcoat Affair gets the feature treatment, in which Thrush agent Louis Strago (Jack Palance) attempts to unleash climate change upon the world.
One of Our Spies is Missing (1967) Vera Miles, Yvonne Craig and James Doohan guest as Solo and Kuryakin head to London and Paris to foil a plot hatched by the nefarious fashion industry.
The Karate Killers (1967) The Five Daughters Affair feature version, with heavyweight heavies Telly Savalas and Herbert Lom providing the menace while Joan Crawford, Jill Ireland and Kim Darby make up the distaff side.
The Helicopter Spies (1968) Carol Lynley and Bradford Dillman lend their talent to the film version of The Prince of Darkness Affair.
How to Steal the World (1968) Leslie Nielsen joins Robert Vaughn and David McCallum for the film version of the U.N.C.L.E. series closer, The Seven Wonders of the World Affair.

As an UNCLE fan from the beginning, I can clearly remember the stir the first two films "To Trap A Spy" and "The Spy With My Face" created when they were released in the movies. Released during the later part of the series' first season when UNCLE was already becoming a sensation, I can remember standing on a long line on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn, waiting to see them at the Loews Kings, a Golden-Age movie palace. Later when they got to my local theater, I went again and spent an entire afternoon watching them over and over.
"To Trap a Spy" is the UNCLE pilot "The Vulcan Affair" with some additional footage added featuring Lucianna Paluzzi, soon to be featured in the Bond epic "Thunderball." "The Spy With My Face" is based on the great first season episode "The Double Affair" featuring 2 Napoleon Solos. There was additional footage added as well. Both were in color, while the first season of UNCLE was broadcast in black and white. (Not that it mattered to me since we only had a black and white TV anyway.) The success of these films created a demand for more UNCLE films. The third film was the second season opener "The Alexander the Greater Affair," now entitled "One Spy Too Many." There was nothing new added to this 2 part episode and it basically played as the bottom part of an MGM double feature. Never one of my favorites, it was the last UNCLE film to be released theatrically in the U.S.
The next three UNCLE films were total mediocrities,the last two based on episodes from UNCLE's horrendous third (camp) season.
The last two films "The Helicoptor Spies" and "How To Steal The World" are based on two 2 parters from UNCLE's abbreviated 4th (great) season.

I had just purchased an all-region DVD player and the UNCLE movies in PAL format when Warner Brothers announced the release of the entire set of movies.

As a "first cousin", one of the most important reasons for having the movies is that they contain additional characters, scenes and storylines not included in the televised episodes. For US UNCLE fans, having all of the movies is a particularly advantageous since the later movies were never shown in US theatres.

I'm in agreement with the well-written Cohen review, which provided a lot of background information about the movies. I can't remember how much the review specifically covered about the episodes from which the movies were created, so I apologize for any redundancies.

First Season Movies:
"To Trap a Spy" was the original adaptation of the pilot "Solo". The guest actors included Fritz Weaver as Andrew Vulcan, Patricia Crowley ("Please Don't Eat The Daisies" and Vaughn's wife in an episode of "The Lieutenant"), William Marshall and Ivan Dixon ("Hogan's Heroes"). In watching "To Trap a Spy", it appears there were voice-over edits of the name of the nasty organization of evil-doers aiding Vulcan and his plot. Also, based on the date and time period mentioned, it would seem that "Vulcan" occurred around 1961; arguably, some of the first season episodes could have occurred before 1964.

Subsequent to the initial filming of "Solo", NBC exec, Grant Tinker, wanted "the K guy" dropped from the cast. Tinker meant Kuryakin, not Kuluva. Rolfe and Felton held onto their Soviet agent, the scenes done by Will Kuluva as Mr. Allison were edited out (Kuluva later appeared as von Etske in Fourth Season's "Gurnius Affair"). Leo G.

The Man from UNCLE was the first of a number of espionage series on TV during the 1960s, and for a time, one of the most successful. The two films from the first season, To Trap a Spy, an expanded version of the pilot, and Spy With My Face, were the most realistic. The scripts were written as the series was just beginning to find its style, and come across as more original than later efforts. By the second season the series had hit its stride. The premise was similar to the James Bond films, and like Ian Fleming's novels, the scripts were often fanciful. One Spy Too Many has the agents battling a megalomaniac industrialist bent on global conquest. One of Our Spies is Missing has an intriguing sci-fi angle involving a search for an anti-aging device, and is somewhat understated. In the third season, the series degenerated into self-parody, with the result that the two films from that era are mediocre at best. In the fourth season, the series went back to the original approach of drama rather than satire. The two entries from that time, Helicopter Spies and How to Steal the World feature good plots, with some real tension. But even better scripts were unable to revive a series which had been undercut by broader social changes. In 1965, international politics was dominated by the Cold War, making espionage popular. By 1968, in the wake of the political turbulence surrounding the Vietnam War, audiences were more interested in other issues, and spy sagas had fallen out of favor.

I just recieved this pack of 8 Man From U.N.C.L.E. movies and watching them took me way back to a time when I used to sit glued to the television and watch the series. I wouldn't miss a single episode and now I have the movies that are so good. These guys (Napoleon Solo and Ilya Kuriakin) were the coolest spies of the 60's and held their own against movie superspy James Bond. I am very happy to finally have these movies and recommend them to any fans of the series.
