All five feature-length spinoffs from the classic 1960s spy series 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E'. With weapons in hand - and tongues in cheek - agents Napoleon Solo (Robert Vaughn) and Illya Kuryakin (David McCallum) carry out the bidding of U.N.C.L.E. chief Alexander Waverly (Leo G. Carroll). Guest stars include Joan Crawford, Rip Torn, Herbert Lom, Telly Savalas, Terry-Thomas, John Carradine and Leslie Nielson. Films are: 'The Spy With No Face', 'One Spy Too Many', 'Karate Killers', 'Helicopter Spies' and 'How to Steal the World'.
Fans of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. felt doubly blessed in 1965. Not only did its second series debut in colour, but there was also the first of several spin-off movies. The Spy with My Face thrilled audiences with "The August Affair", a plot to replace Napoleon Solo (Robert Vaughn) with a look-alike. The movie's only disappointment in this golden year for the show was the inexplicable absence of its catchy theme tune.
By the third series the show had strayed too far into the campness of Batman, which also started in 1966. One Spy Too Many demonstrated the rush to cash-in on success before the bubble burst. This second theatrical release actually consists of two TV episodes, and played on US small screens first. This then became the pattern for the later movies, although what played where on international TV in episodic fashion becomes extremely complicated. The Karate Killers features Joan Crawford, Herbert Lom and Telly Savalas in a search for a secret formula (from Series 3). The Helicopter Spies pits Solo and Kuryakin (David McCallum) against two criminal masterminds (culled from Series 4). How to Steal the World is very much a finale, in that it comes from the very last episode. It rather shows, too, with only Leslie Nielsen looking serious about his art.
It's no top secret that The Man from U.N.C.L.E.'s finest hours came early; the same certainly goes for these movies. Nevertheless, the gadgets are always great, the girls easy on the eye and the two leads superb in their chemistry together.
On the DVD: The Man From U.N.C.L.E. has survived pretty well for its DVD incarnation. Although there's some grain and artefacts evident in the print, colours are bright and the image is generally sharp. Some work has gone into providing fun fan material, but unfortunately it's all via DVD-ROM and in PDF format. The eight text documents cover series origins, merchandise, the fans themselves and, of course, the movies featured in this box set. --Paul Tonks --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

and at the current asking price,under 9 pounds represent good value for a 5 movie box-set.A thought to leave you with both the leads in the show are still working in mainstream tv Robert Vaughn plays Albert in Hustle and David McCallum plays Ducky Mallard in NCIS what other 40 year old show can claim that? If you liked U.N.C.L.E. first time around your on a winner here if your a first time viewer try your luck you may be surprised
As Follows- To Trap A Spy- which also stars Luciana Paluzzi, (She Played Fiona In Thunderball) How could they not include this in box Set!
The Spy In The Green Hat! with Janet Leigh & Jack Palance, this is the the one with the retired Gangsters reliving their bootleg days, A brilliant send up, Rather Disappointing not to be released!
One of Our Spies Is Missing, This is the one where Ilya is trailing Cats! To see who is stealing them!
Anyway I wont say anything about the films included apart from- Karate Killers -This stars Kim Darby, who starred alongside John Wayne in True Grit!
There is no Booklet In The Box Set!, This would of been nice ,telling something of each film, other stars in them & what else they have been in,
Lets Hope They Release another Box Set which Has the 3 Missing Films In!!...
I have to see my U.N.C.L.E. Now!
The series was an immediate hit and ran the course of the 1960s. There was even a one season spin off, The Girl From Uncle, starring Stephanie Powers as April Dancer. And of course, the eight movies ... or rather two part television episodes stitched together and re edited with additional footage (bedroom scenes, etc) to justify theatrical release. So they were not really cinema films.
In 1983, the two UNCLE operatives returned under a new boss played by Patrick MacNee in the TV special, The Return of The Man From Uncle, which saw arch enemies THRUSH finally becoming nuclear terrorists (the original script had them develop a world dominating super computer). The show's roots were acknowledged with a guest appearance of George Lazenby as British agent JB complete with tricked up Aston Martin. It proved a one off comeback and no further assignments followed.
A welcome release of the show's first colour season, but could with have the premier series out soon, in all its glorious black and white?
Video and audio quality is par for the course - lets face it they are not going to do a massive restoration job on tv stuff - but if you were ever a fan of Napolean and Illya - you want these discs. 7.5 hours of pure nostalgia.
Don't expect to be convinced by it, just as you don't expect to be convinced by James Bond, Harrison Ford and by a great many more 'up-to-date' films and DVDs. just relax and enjoy it! The characters are every bit as good as you will remember from the past, and the adventures they get into are FUN! Forget about the fact that it seems dated - just enjoy the history, the drama and the characters! (My favourite still has to be Kuryakin - no wonder I'm also addicted to NCIS! LOL!).
Enjoy the naivety of it all, and relax!!! This is a set well worth buying (especailly at this price!)
I LOVED it and looked forwards to watching another 'episode' in the series of films. i just wish they would release some of the missing films and more episodes as well.
