Turner Classic Movies is finally taking a break from airing those same ole b/w 30s and 40s potboilers and will be presenting all 8 feature films culled from episodes of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. starring Robert Vaughn as suave Napoleon Solo and David McCallum as sexy Illya Kuryakin and featuring Sixties starlets galore on Nov. 6. Click here for the schedule.
I personally am looking forward to 1968’s Helicopter Spies (4:15PM) featuring Carol Lynley as a dippy blonde with revenge on her mind who keeps accidentally preventing U.N.C.L.E. from capturing mad man Bradford Dillman who has in his possession the thermal prism which he plans to use to conquer the world aided by Thordis Brandt as the salicious Miss Zalamar. Other spy chicks popping up over the course of the day are Luciana Paluzzi, Senta Berger, Yvonne Craig, Diane McBain, Irene Tsu, and Donna Michelle, among many others.
