The two top agents of the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement fight the enemies of peace, particularly the forces of THRUSH.
This series was a veritable hotbed for up and coming, fresh-faced TV stars just starting their acting careers. The most notable ones worth looking for are: Jack Lord, Ricardo Montalban, Sonny and Cher, William Shatner AND Leonard Nimoy (in the same episode - "The Project Strigas Affair"), James Doohan, Werner Klemperer, June Lockhart and Robert Culp. Within a few years of their guest appearance on The Man From U.N.C.L.E., they would go on to star in their own iconic TV shows from this era.
It's a handicap isn't it? Being so obviously American?
Throughout the run of the series there was a large globe of the world used in the UNCLE office. However, it didn't appear to be current as it seemed to be from the middle of WW II. The colors for Europe seemed to reflect the conquests by the Axis powers, as well as the occupation of parts of China and southeast Asia by Japan.
Each episode's credits included a dedication to the men and women of UNCLE.
Every two-part episodes of this series was re-edited for theatrical release in Europe. Each of these films include scenes filmed especially for theaters, often including additional violence or innuendo, while the TV versions also include scenes not released theatrically. These movies are listed separately in the IMDb.
