Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

In this unfunny spy spoof, Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin are dispatched to prevent the formula for turning sea water into gold from falling into the hands of a memorable, but woefully underused, rogues' gallery. Man from UNCLE regulars Robert Vaughn, David McCallum and Leo G Carroll cross swords with guest stars Joan Crawford, Telly Savalas, Terry-Thomas, Curt Jurgens and Herbert Lom, but director Barry Shear's clumsy slapstick approach does no credit to the original TV series.
