The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

MGM / ARENA
- 105 Episodes

Somewhere in New York City . . .


The original idea for The Man from U.N.C.L.E. came from Norman Felton, the executive producer of the series. The outline of the original television series, one of the most successful during the Sixties and initially called 'Solo', was drafted by Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond, who was brought in as a paid consultant as it was intended to be a spoof on Bond, which was itself a spoof on the world of international espionage. Fleming, who invented the names Napoleon Solo and April Dancer, was unable to finish the work (accounts vary as to whether it was due to illness or whether Bond producer Cubby Broccoli objected to his involvement with the spy 'rival') and it was taken over by the series producers Norman Felton and Sam Rolfe, Felton being responsible for the introduction of the Illya Kuryakin character and Rolfe for the name of the organisation.

The character's name was taken from the Broadway play 'Illya Darling', a musical adaptation of the film 'Never on Sunday', written and directed by Jules Dassin. J.Edgar Hoover, the FBI director at the height of the cold war, apparently loathed the series as one of the main characters was a Russian and also because the department was inundated with letters from people of all ages enquiring as to how they could join the U.N.C.L.E. organisation. A person had to be hired specially at the United Nations headquarters in New York just to reply to these kinds of letters.

The name U.N.C.L.E., like its evil, global domination-obsessed adversary, THRUSH, did not originally stand for anything in particular but fan interest was so intense and persistent that the acronyms 'United Network Command for Law and Enforcement' and 'Technical Hierarchy for the Removal of Undesirables and the Subjugation of Humanity' were subsequently created. The U.N.C.L.E. acronym normally appears with stops after the initials whereas THRUSH generally does not - it is usually just seen as a graphic logo. The THRUSH name was coined by Sam Rolfe from a list of about 30 possibilities and the organisation was called WASP in the pilot show. The acronym was invented by novelist David McDaniel.

In the original version of the pilot episode (shot in colour but un-aired), the Chief of U.N.C.L.E. was played by Will Kuluva and was named 'Mr. Allison'. When screened, network executives told the producers to "get rid of the foreign guy". They actually meant David McCallum's Russian character but the producers thought they meant Kuluva, so when the program was finally shown it was transmitted in black and white with Kulava's scenes re-shot, featuring Leo G. Carroll as Alexander Waverly. Although created at the height of the Cold War, David McCallum's Russian character became a youth cult phenomenon and he received more fan mail than any other actor in MGM's history. He was even the subject of a pop record 'Love Ya, Illya' (performed by Alma Cogan under the name 'Angela and the Fans') that became a hit on pirate radio in the U.K. during 1966.

Napoleon Solo

Based in a hidden H.Q. in New York City, U.N.C.L.E. (United Network Command for Law and Enforcement) is located a block from the East River at East 46th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues, near the United Nations complex. Top U.N.C.L.E. agents Napoleon Solo (Robert Vaughn) and Illya Kuryakin (David McCallum) usually gained entry to the secret complex through a camouflaged entrance in a changing cubicle at the rear of Del Floria's cleaning outlet, the scene featuring in the opening sequence of all the TV episodes. Four other entrances were known to exist: a hinged wall in the shower area of a public garage, an underground tunnel from the river, a nightclub called The Mask Club and an entrance used by high-level personnel that was shown in the "The Mad, Mad Tea Party Affair".


There was a 'Moneypenny-like' receptionist handing out security badges, whom Solo used to flirt shamelessly with, and another similarity to the James Bond productions was the featuring of high-tech futuristic weapons and gadgetry which included a car with gull-wing doors, the U.N.C.L.E. guns ( which were Walther P38s with many special attachments such as silencers and long range sights ), the sophisticated security badges and, of course, the fountain pen communicator with its extending aerial and distinctive transmission sound. "Open channel D . . . ."

The series had a distinctly British flavour, both David McCallum and Leo Carroll being of that extraction. Leo was a successful West End stage actor before moving to Hollywood in 1934 and appeared in six Alfred Hitchcock films. He died, aged 80, in 1972. Stunts were usually performed by David McCallum and Robert Vaughn, as well as by stuntmen, and the best-looking version was used. David McCallum wasn't great with heights and Robert Vaughn wasn't too keen on water so they tended to avoid those types of stunts. In passing.... the map on Alexander Waverly's office wall is wrong in a number of ways: It shows Canada and Newfoundland as two separate states, it is missing East Pakistan and Indo-China is shown as a single nation named 'Siam'. This can clearly be seen in several episodes.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. television series was an American production produced by Arena Productions using the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studio facilities and was originally transmitted on NBC in the U.S. from 22nd September 1964 until 15th January 1968 (screened by BBC1 in the U.K. about a year later). It consisted of a total of 105 episodes each titled ' The . . . . . Affair', such as 'The Dippy Blonde Affair' and 'The Bow Wow Affair' and each show being subdivided into several 'acts'. Every episode's screen credits included a dedication to the men and women of U.N.C.L.E. 'without whose assistance this programme would not be possible', although U.N.C.L.E. does not exist, and never has. Every two-part story was reedited into a cinema film. These were initially released in Europe, being shown later on American TV. Additional footage was shot to make up the length and make it more 'cinematic' including scenes containing additional violence or innuendo not acceptable to television. Conversely, the TV versions include some scenes not used in the films.

Among the many famous 'guest artists' to appear in the show were Vincent Price, Vera Miles, Sonny and Cher, Joan Collins, William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy (they appeared together in one episode before being cast together as the main characters in 'Star Trek' a couple of years later), Kurt Russell, Joan Crawford, Jack Palance, Janet Leigh, Richard Anderson, Joan Blondell, Roger C. Carmel, Elsa Lanchester; Yvonne Craig, Kim Darby, Ivan Dixon, Anne Francis, Richard Kiel, Angela Lansbury, Julie London, Leslie Nielsen, William Marshall, Eve McVeagh, Carroll O'Connor, Eleanor Parker, Slim Pickens, Dorothy Provine, Cesar Romero, Nancy Sinatra, Terry-Thomas, Fritz Weaver and Elen Willard in her last acting role.
