Trivia

In a brief scene on a trans-Atlantic airliner, there is a brief glimpse of a title card for a film, "One Spy Too Many", with production credit to Arena Productions and Metro-Goldwyn Mayer. This film was in fact a theatrical release made by editing together the two parts of "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." second season opening episode, "Alexander the Greater Affair (Parts 1 and 2)", and it was produced by Arena Productions and MGM (which were the production companies responsible for the series.

Goofs

The "bats" swarming around Zark as he flees the lab are clearly just lengths of black crepe or fabric dropped from overhead like confetti. See more »

Landau Plays Lugosi Before Ed Wood
1 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

This episode mixes Bridey Murphy with Count Dracula. Solo takes care of a girl from the Ozarks with E.S.P while Kuryakin finds himself a prisoner of Transyvanian Count Zark, who plans to disrupt air travel using trained bats to clog airport radar. Martin Landau, who plays Count Zark, had already perfected his Bela Lugosi role long before Ed Wood. Solo gets updates on what Kuryakin is doing from Clemancy. Kuryakin takes quite a bit of abuse from Zark's Frankenstein-like henchman. Watch for an in-joke as Solo and Clemancy watch the movie "One Spy Too Many," which was a compilation of the "The Alexander the Greater Affair." This episode is more fun than logical.
