Review: ‘One Spy Too Many’

Expanded from a Man from U.N.C.LE. TV two-parter, One Spy Too Many zips along at a jazzy spy thriller pace.

Expanded from a Man from U.N.C.LE. TV two-parter, One Spy Too Many zips along at a jazzy spy thriller pace.

Action and gadgetry are hung on a slender plot. Alexander, played by Rip Torn, is out to take over the world in the fashion of his Greek namesake. He hoists from the US Army Biological Warfare Division a tankful of its secret ‘will gas,’ leaving a Greek inscription in the lab.

International espionage agents Robert Vaughn and David McCallum begin to pursue Alexander and are joined in their efforts by his wife (Dorothy Provine), who is attempting to reach her husband in order to have him sign her divorce papers.
