Revealing mistake: When Napoleon and Illya are on the flight to Austria, Illya receives a call from Mr. Waverly on his communicator. Instead of the pen nib, the gold microphone cap is visibly already in place; Illya takes it out and pretends to turn it over before replacing it. (00:14:00)Cubs Fan
Plot hole: Solo blows open the ceiling vent of Illya and Marion's cell, and she stands on Illya's shoulders until Solo can reach her and pull her out. This leaves Illya with nothing/no one to stand on, no way to reach the vent and no apparent way out of the cell. But he's out just the same in the next scene, with no explanation as to how.

Napoleon Solo: My name is Napoleon Solo. I'm an enforcement agent in Section Two here. That's operations and enforcement.
Illya Kuryakin: I am Illya Kuryakin. I am also an enforcement agent. Like my friend Napoleon, I go and I do whatever I am told to by our chief.
Alexander Waverly: Hmm? Oh, yes. Alexander Waverly. Number One in Section One. In charge of this, our New York headquarters. It's from here that I send these young men on their various missions.
Trivia: Four of the guests at Marion's party are played by U.N.C.L.E. production staff in cameo roles. Creator-producer Norman Felton is the man playing chess, producer Sam Rolfe is the dancing Texan, associate producer/writer Joseph Calvelli is the writer typing at the coffee table, and director Richard Donner is the drunk in the extremely loud sport coat.Jean G
