Some scenes from the unforgetable episode #25


Episode 25 is one of the best episode in the whole series. With guest stars Barbara Feldon and Cesar Romero, its clever script (by Dean Hargrove) deals with the "common life versus spy adventure" theme, so important in the UNCLE mythology. Some images from this unforgetable episode:

Second Reel: The Man from UNCLE (2015) Deserves a Sequel


Posted by December 4, 2018

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is a 2015 movie adaptation of the classic television show of the same name that ran for 105 episodes from 1965 to 1968. In the age of reboots and considering how well the Mission: Impossible franchise did the jump from television to film, it isn’t surprising that they decided to give this one a try. There weren’t any stylized and old-school James Bond series at the time which is a niche that needed to be filled. It’s another project that fell into development hell with plenty of big names rumored to be interested in the project before it eventually fell to Guy Ritchie. He then decided to bring on Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, and Alicia Vikander.

Unfortunately for the production, it seemed that timing was just not on their side. Warner Bros. decided to push the movie into mid-August which is an infamous dead zone for movie releases. It ended up in third place that month, losing to Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and the surprise hit Straight out of Compton. This was before Hammer or Vikdander picked up the roles that would net them Academy Award nominations, so the biggest “draw” was Cavill, even though his version of Superman is not universally beloved. The movie ended up bombing pretty hard with a $109 million dollar worldwide box office on a budget of $75-$84 million. Since budgets don’t include marketing, it is estimated that the movie lost Warner Bros. up to $80 million.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. did not do well with its first movie but the combined pedigree of the cast, the director, and if Warner Bros. gives it a reasonable budget there is no reason we couldn’t see another entry in this franchise.

Episode # 25 Guest Star: Cesar Romero



Cesar Julio Romero Jr. (February 15, 1907 – January 1, 1994) was an American actor, singer, dancer and vocal artist. He was active in film, radio, and television for almost 60 years. His wide range of screen roles included Latin lovers, historical figures in costume dramas, characters in light domestic comedies, and the Joker on the Batman television series, who was included in TV Guide's 2013 list of The 60 Nastiest Villains of All Time.
Cesar Julio Romero Jr. was born in New York City on February 15, 1907, the son of Cesar Julio Romero Sr. and Maria Mantilla. His mother was said to be the biological daughter of Cuban national hero José Martí. His father was born in Barcelona, Spain and immigrated to the United States in 1888, where he was an import/export merchant. 
He grew up in Bradley Beach, New Jersey, and was educated at Bradley Beach Elementary School, Asbury Park High School,the Collegiate School, and the Riverdale Country Day School. 
In 1960, he was cast as Ricky Valenti in "Crime of Passion" from Pete and Gladys. In 1965, Romero played the head of THRUSH in France in "The Never Never Affair" from The Man from U.N.C.L.E. From 1966 to 1968, he portrayed the Joker on Batman. He refused to shave his moustache for the role, and so the supervillain's white face makeup was simply smeared over it throughout the series' run and in the 1966 film.
On January 1, 1994, aged 86, Romero died from complications of a blood clot while being treated for bronchitis and pneumonia at Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica, California.

Episode # 25 Guest Star: Barbara Feldon



Barbara Feldon (born March 12, 1933) is an American character actress who works mostly in the theatre, but is primarily known for her roles on television. Her most prominent role was that of Agent 99 on the 1960s sitcom Get Smart. She also worked as a model. 


Feldon was born Barbara Anne Hall in Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, and grew up in Pittsburgh. She graduated from Bethel Park High School and trained at Pittsburgh Playhouse. In 1955 she graduated from Carnegie Institute of Technology (now Carnegie Mellon University) as a Bachelor of Arts in drama. She was initiated into the Delta Xi Chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma. In 1957, she won the grand prize on The $64,000 Question in the category of William Shakespeare.


Following working as a model, Feldon's break came in the form of a popular and much parodied television commercial for "Top Brass", a hair pomade for men by Revlon. Lounging languidly on an animal print rug, she purred at the camera, addressing the male viewers as "tigers". This led to small roles in television series. In the 1960s, she made appearances on Twelve O'Clock High (S1 E24: "End of the Line"), Lorne Greene's GriffFlipper (S1 E12: & E13: "The Lady & The Dolphin") and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (in "The Never-Never Affair"). In 1964, she appeared with Simon Oakland in the episode "Try to Find a Spy" of CBS's short-lived drama Mr. Broadway.
Feldon's feature films included Fitzwilly (1967), Smile (1975) and No Deposit, No Return (1976). Her last film to date is 2006's Last Request, a comedy with Danny Aiello and Joe Piscopo. Feldon reprised her role as "Agent 99" in the made-for-television film Get Smart, Again! (1989) and a short-lived television series also titled Get Smart in 1995. She wrote and provided audio 
 
Don Adams & Barbara Feldon in Get Smart
commentaries and introductions for the DVD release of the original Get Smart series in 2006 but did not take part in the 2008 film adaptation that starred Steve Carell as Maxwell Smart. Feldon guest-starred as a former TV spy star on a 1993 episode (S1 E20) of Mad About You, as Diane "Spy Girl" Caldwell.
Feldon has served as the actress's last name since her marriage to Lucien Verdoux-Feldon in 1958. The pair divorced in 1967. In 1968 she began a relationship with Get Smart producer Burt Nodella. That union lasted 12 years. She does not have any children. Upon ending her relationship, she moved back to New York City where she resides.
