To Trap a Spy is an elaborated version of MGM-TV’s The Man From U.N.C.L.E. pilot, originally lensed in color but telecast in black-and-white to tee off series on September 23, 1964. Additional footage was shot to bring total running time now to 92 minutes.

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.
