The Man from U.N.C.L.E. premiered in the fall of 1964. Created with the help of Ian Fleming and envisioned as a television version of James Bond, the original title was to be Ian Fleming's Solo but this was soon halted by legal action by James Bond producers Harry Saltzman and Albert Broccoli, who objected to the use of Fleming's name in the title and the name Napoleon Solo, as "Solo" had been a minor character in Goldfinger. In the ensuing legal settlement, the title was changed, but the character name stayed, with the title changed to The Man from U.N.C.L.E. The name of the antagonists also went through several revisions before settling on THRUSH, an acronym that was never officially defined during the run of the series.

As the both titles suggested, the show was about one agent, Napoleon Solo, played by Robert Vaughn, but fans responded well to Solo's fellow UNCLE agent Illya Kuryakin, played by David McCallum, and they became a duo, although early episodes still used Kuryakin sparingly, if at all. That McCallum was able to stay on the show at all was a happy accident, as NBC executives had called for him to be replaced after viewing the original pilot. The executives had specified someone who's name had started with the letter K. Norman Felton thought this mean Will Kukuva, who played Mr. Allison (later changed to Mr. Waverly). It wasn't until later that it was revealed that the executives had mean Kuryakin, but by then it was too late.

The original pilot was fleshed out into the feature To Trap a Spy with scenes later used for the episode "The Four-Steps Affair" (S01E21). "The Four-Steps Affair" was also used to flesh out the episode "The Double Affair" (S01E08) into the feature The Spy with My Face.

The following weapons were used in Season 1 of the television series The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (1964):

Contents


UNCLE Special

The most famous weapon to come out of the series, or possibly any series, is the "UNCLE Special" issued to agents Napoleon Solo (Robert Vaughn) and Illya Kuryakin (David McCallum). With an attachable stock, scope, and barrel extension, the pistol quickly turns into a carbine. The producers were looking for a versatile and distinctive weapon to have on their show, one that could be adapted as the plot required.

1934 Mauser Pocket Pistol

The first attempt at the UNCLE Special was based on a 1934 Mauser Pocket Pistol. It was introduced in the second episode, as the pilot had Solo carrying a Luger P08. The Mauser variant only lasted one episode however, as the pistol was too small for all of the attachments, it did not photograph well, and even worse, didn't handle blanks well. There were continuity errors throughout the second episode, as Solo switched to a Walther P38 whenever he had to fire his weapon. They would show up sporadically through the season.

Trivia

Where does Solo keep all of those accessories for his UNCLE Special? A shot of Solo's OWB accessories holster in "The Iowa-Scuba Affair" (S01E02). The pistol itself is carried in a shoulder holster.

Walther P38

As the Mauser had been unable to cycle blanks, the armorers had to borrow Walther P38s from the nearby Combat! set. A bigger pistol firing reliable 9mm blanks, the P38 was a logical replacement for the smaller, .32 caliber Mauser. Eventually, six UNCLE guns were produced at the cost of $1500 apiece, although only two of them were full upgraded, with shoulder stock, scope, barrel extension, and even full auto. While the modifications rendered the guns incapable of firing real rounds, the full auto modification caught the attention of the Treasury department, which fined the studio $2000.

Although the second episode featured the Mauser-based UNCLE gun, and didn't otherwise include Illya, a short intro, which was filmed later in the season, was added to the top of each episode, which meant that Illya is the first man the audience sees wielding the Walther-based UNCLE gun.

Handguns

Luger P08

Napoleon Solo's handgun in the pilot, prior to the introduction of the UNCLE specials, was a Luger P08. It is seen in the hands of various characters throughout the season.

Dancer (Miguel Ángel Landa) with his Luger in "The Four Step Affair" (S01E21).
Kaza (Malachi Throne) with Solo's Luger in "The Four Step Affair" (S01E21). Although Solo going back to the Luger seemed odd, footage from this episode was combined with the first episode (where he carries the Luger) and "The Double Affair" (S01E08) to create the film The Spy With My Face.
