A Tv movie that was more than Bond meets Superman.
Wine,Women & War was a departure from Martin Caidins novel Cyborg that the series was based on. It was a joy to watch when I was a boy of fourteen & had the feel of a bond film which included bondish music written by Glen Larson, who also wrote the TV movie.

It was two hours of escapist fun which was not as gritty as Martin Caidins novel Cyborg, but did make you think it would be possible for a former astronaut who had walked on the moon could be a natural as a super powered operative for a government agency like the OSI (CIA like agecy) & even though it had some technical weakness it was a great movie in my humble opinion.

Trivia

Some changes to the show's premise were made between The Six Million Dollar Man (1973) movie and the sequel. In the first film, Austin is described in dialogue as being a civilian, but in this film this is changed to him being an Air Force Colonel (and dialogue confirms this version of the character was a Colonel at the time he walked on the moon). As noted above, Oliver Spencer (Darren McGavin) was replaced by Oscar Goldman (Richard Anderson) (a character from the original Cyborg novels) and a new actor plays Dr. Rudy Wells. In addition, the organization, for which Colonel Austin works, is now the OSI, not the OSO.


Quotes

Col. Steve Austin: Listen, pal, the next time you want me on a mission, you lay it all out on front, or I'll kick your department so high you'll need Sky-Lab to get it down.


Goofs

Rocket launch-tower framework and outdoor-type daylight visible in the shot that is supposedly of the indoor missile's engine being ignited. Obviously reused footage of a NASA rocket launch, enlarged and turned sideways.


Alternate Versions

Among the extra footage is a brief flashback montage (seen in part 2 when Austin is waking up from being tranquilized) that shows footage from the first TV movie and, because this edit was made later in the show's run, snippets of footage from later seasons. As a result, in part 2 of the re-edited version of 'Wine, Women & War' it is possible to see Martin E. Brooks, who played Dr. Rudy Wells beginning in the second season, Martin Balsam, who played Wells in the first TV movie, and Darren McGavin, who played Oliver Spencer, the character replaced by Oscar Goldman with this film.
