The Concrete Overcoat Affair (1) - S3-E11

Jean G

The Matterhorn Affair - S3-E24

Continuity mistake: Illya slams the door on the approaching gunman and holds it with his foot until the lock is turned, then lowers his leg. Cut to a wider shot, and he takes his foot off the door all over again. (00:35:45)

Jean G

The It's All Greek to Me Affair - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: The table with the code papers resting on it is smashed during the fight in the final act. Yet, when the fight is nearly over, the table has restored itself with the papers still on it, only to be squashed all over again. (00:45:00 - 00:47:05)

Jean G

The Yo-Ho-Ho and a Bottle of Rum Affair - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: The ship we see steaming out of Hong Kong (with Illya aboard) is shown later out on the open sea - only it's not the same ship. The first was painted black: the ship we see later is white. (00:05:25 - 00:08:30)

Jean G

The Take Me to Your Leader Affair - S3-E16

Jean G

The Pop Art Affair - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: The Thrush assassins have an armed golf cart (with a machine gun that handily spews both flames and bullets at the same time). When the cart overturns, the two men fall into a sand trap and tumble several feet away from the vehicle. In the very next shot, they're lying right beside the cart again. (00:02:40)

Jean G

The Cap and Gown Affair - S3-E30

Continuity mistake: Solo picks up a book, The History of Pacifism, and shows it to Illya, holding it at the bottom. Cut to a close-up insert and his fingers have instantly migrated up to the middle of the book. Cut back to the wider shot, and he's no longer holding the book at all. It's back on the table. (00:19:10)

Jean G

The Her Master's Voice Affair - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: When the taxi leaves the airport, it's a 1965 Ford. When next seen en route, it's a 1958 model with really big tail fins. When it arrives at the house, it's a '65 again, with no tail fins. (00:20:30)

Jean G

The Candidate's Wife Affair - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: Fairbanks fires at the intruders from the doorway of his house. In the next shot, however, he's leaped forward several feet and is now firing from behind a large chair. (00:39:00)

Jean G

The My Friend, the Gorilla Affair - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: The giant (and obviously fake) spider is beside Marsha, crawling toward her extended right hand when Illya tells her to freeze. But when he clobbers the foam-rubber menace in the next shot, he attacks the grass behind her. And her right hand, stretched out on the grass when he said "Freeze," has instantaneously moved to her lap between takes. (00:29:05)

Jean G

The Matterhorn Affair - S3-E24

Continuity mistake: When the bad guys hang Marvin upside down, his tie comes loose and falls over his face. A few shots later, though, it somehow tucks itself back up again, even though his hands are tied and he couldn't have touched it. (00:23:45)

Jean G

The Jingle Bells Affair - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: When the gunmen storm the rescue mission, they enter through a 3-paned glass door with its glass intact. Cut to an interior shot of them coming in, and the glass is now completely broken out. (00:27:25)

Jean G

The Napoleon's Tomb Affair - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: During his fight with Edgar, Illya is counting aloud, waiting for the sleep dart he stabbed the big man with to take effect. Between his counts of 8 and 9, he instantly moves 3 feet to the left relative to the cardboard boxes stacked in the warehouse. (00:35:50)

Jean G

The Take Me to Your Leader Affair - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: Illya's shoe converts to an improbable electric drill. He inserts a foot-long drill bit (and just where was he hiding that when the baddies searched him?) into the flat of the heel. But when he starts drilling at the bars, the bit is sticking out of the side of the shoe instead. (00:21:15)

Jean G

The Deadly Smorgasbord Affair - S3-E18

Jean G

The Napoleon's Tomb Affair - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: Edgar collapses on the warehouse floor next to a large stack of wine boxes. But in the wider shot, as Illya unties Solo, the wine crates have disappeared. (00:36:35)

Jean G

The Five Daughters Affair (2) - S3-E29

Continuity mistake: On the ground, the mini-jet has a large yellow U.N.C.L.E. logo on its nose. In the air, the logo keeps disappearing, and the plane's tail assembly changes configurations. (00:00:10 - 00:01:35)

Mistakes

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.

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.
