U.N.C.L.E. agents Solo and Kuryakin try to stop a megalomaniac who thinks he's like Alexander The Great, commits offenses against the ten commandments and steals chemical weapons from the army in order to achieve world domination.
U.N.C.L.E. agents Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin travel around the globe in an effort to track down a secret formula that was divided into four parts and left by a dying scientist with his four daughters, all of whom live in different countries. Evil THRUSH agent Randolph also wants the formula, and is aided by his karate-chopping henchmen.Written by

The film was previously seen on NBC@10:00 p.m. (EST), Friday, March 31 and Friday, April 7, 1966 as the 87th & 88th episodes of "Man from U.N.C.L.E., The" (1964), "The Five Daughters Affair" (Parts 1 and 2). See more »
Due to the difference in lighting and film stock, during the fight in the snow (shot on a soundstage) the shadows on the "snow" are a slightly reddish grey/black. In shots taken outside in normal daylight, they are blue/black. See more »
That line from Randolph ( Herbert Lom ) to Amanda ( Joan Crawford ) defines this film and probably the whole Man from U.N.C.L.E series.
A Stella cast join Solo and Kuryakin for another romp through the 60s world of spies, kitsch and groovy music. Culled from The 5 Daughters Affair it is a delight from start to finish. And for me is the best of all the Uncle films.
As others have mentioned, there are many future Bond references here. The Auto-gyro, the ski chase, Telly Savalas & Curd Jürgens. However it should be remembered the character Napoleon Solo was invented by Ian Fleming who died in 1964.
And when a father is not available, the next best thing is an Uncle.
