The Fiery Angel Affair - S4-E9

Continuity mistake: The framed photo Abaca picks up from the desk isn't the same one he shows Solo in the next shot. It's not even the same size or shape. (00:26:00)

Revealing mistake: The white 1967 Plymouth Valiant that's pushed off the cliff suddenly turns into a much older 1950s sedan when it goes over, revealing that the crash is stock footage. (00:40:30)

The Fiery Angel Affair - S4-E9

Continuity mistake: Carlos asks Illya if he's an American, and Illya nods in agreement. He's not undercover and has no reason to lie, so maybe he's suffering from temporary amnesia. He's a Russian citizen working for an international organization HQ'd in New York. He lived in the US, but was never an American. (00:04:20)

Revealing mistake: When the bull charges Solo, chases him over the gate and then slams its horns into the wood, you can see the stick used to operate the fake bull's head. A large section of it is visible just behind the mock-up's neck. (00:34:45)

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: "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.'s" original working title was "Solo," and its lead character was named for a spy with a minor role in one of Ian Fleming's early Bond novels. U.N.C.L.E. producer Norman Felton had a handshake agreement with Fleming to use the name and to develop "Solo" as a TV spy series. But the Bond film franchise had other ideas, reneged on the agreement on Fleming's behalf, and sued, forcing the title change. Felton prevailed only in retaining the character's name: Napoleon Solo.
