Patently released to cash in on current espionage mania, much of the new footage is devoted to build Robert Vaughn, the agent from U.N.C.L.E., into a glamor boy with a roving eye for beautiful femmes. Whatever plot there is revolves around efforts to prevent the assassination of a visiting African dignitary, but the refurbished entry isn’t much better than the original.

Vaughn tries hard and with some success through plot-holes, and gets capable support from Patricia Crowley, Luciana Paluzzi and Fritz Weaver. His sidekick in teleseries, David McCallum, is in only two scenes.
