Thanks Bud, I was curious if there were a site showing the props at that WorldCon.

Butch, I have the soundtrack to "Ghostbreakers". It was put out by Film Score Monthly a few years back. I always wanted to see it.

I have to add, that another reason for the tag at the end of the episodes, is because people kept asking what U.N.C.L.E. stood for. They kept asking if it was a United Nations organization. Well, the United Nations is a copyrighted name, and can not be used without the U.N.'s permission. So they wanted to clear that up before another law suit came their way! Laughing

David.

The very rare promo card (like those print ads of Star Trek, etc), for Solo, the original The Man From U.C.N.L.E. Note Will Kaluva (as Mr. Allison sitting in chair) instead of Waverly.

I wish this six minute video was longer, because it has some very interesting info about the series, along with interviews with Robert Vaughn and David McCallum. Very Happy

And this ten minute video is very well made, showing some of the funniest (and sexiest) moments from the series.

Fun Fact } NBC objected to the term THRUSH for the evil organization that would be UNCLE's main nemesis over the 4~year run of the series.

The name presented legal issues due to THRUSH sounding to much like SMERSH from the James Bond films.

In May of 1964 NBC offered the following titles as replacements: SCORPION, TARANTULA, CRUSH,PHANTOM, SPHINX, VULTURE.and MEDUSA among others.

UNCLE producer Sam Rolfe offered: STIGMA, SCOURGE, HAZARD.

Trivia } TMFU did poorly in the ratings when the series first debuted in 1964.

It was decided that the two leads for the show would go out on tours of selected cities each weekend after filming that week's episode.

This was one of the factors that helped the show.

Such a tactic is commonplace these days, but at that time in the early 60s it was quite original.
