The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

The Master's Touch Affair - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: As he's sprawled unconscious on the floor of Valendros' cell, the position of Illya's arm keeps changing between shots. (00:19:10)

Jean G

The Prince of Darkness Affair (1) - S4-E4

Factual error: Solo is supposedly in Iran, yet there are scores of women in the crowd wearing skimpy, sleeveless tops and mini-skirts. Even in the Shah's Westernized Iran of the 1960s, this was still a Muslim country. Women (including tourists) were not permitted to appear in public without "modestly" covering their arms and legs. (00:11:00)

Jean G

The Seven Wonders of the World Affair (1) - S4-E15

Revealing mistake: Illya flies a helicopter to the Himalayas in search of Solo, and at the same time, Kingsley's men are loading an unconscious Solo into another copter. Not only do the two helicopters look suspiciously similar - they have the exact same registration number: N73959. (00:44:40 - 00:46:30)

Jean G

The Test Tube Killer Affair - S4-E2

Revealing mistake: The stolen green sedan has normal windows in exterior shots. But in all the closer views (shot in-studio and processed with rear-screen projection), the car has no glass in its windshield. (00:41:00)

Jean G

The Deadly Quest Affair - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: Solo and Sheila are against a brick wall with a pipe just behind them as Karmak's leopard approaches. There's a long shot of them edging away to the left, away from the pipe. But in the next close-up, they're back at the same spot with the pipe behind them again. (00:41:55)

Jean G

The THRUSH Roulette Affair - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: In close-up, the brainwashed Illya holds the Luger at an angle, close to his face. But when the shot cuts, he's suddenly holding it straight and much lower, level with his chest. Next close-up, it's back in the original position again. (00:40:10)

Jean G

The Test Tube Killer Affair - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: Greg pulls Christine into the alley. When he says, "It's no good," he's standing squarely face-to-face with her. But in the very next shot, he's moved to a side-on position with his head turned toward her. (00:30:55)

Jean G

The Test Tube Killer Affair - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: The positions of the fencing school students supposedly standing still behind Greg change constantly between shots as the instructor addresses them. (00:06:00)

Jean G

The 'J' for Judas Affair - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: In the intro, Illya shows Solo an automatic rifle he's retrieved after the shoot-out in the mausoleum. In full shot, he's holding his U.N.C.L.E. Special pistol in his right hand as he points to the logo on the rifle's stock. In the close-up insert of his hand, the Special disappears. (00:02:50)

Jean G

The Prince of Darkness Affair (2) - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: Events in the opening recap here differ from those in the previous episode. At the end of part 1, Solo climbs the boat ladder with his hands still tied, loses balance and falls back to the deck. In part 2's recap, he gets his hands free immediately, and never climbs the ladder. (00:03:15)

Jean G

The Master's Touch Affair - S4-E6

Revealing mistake: Solo's little red sports car has an intact windshield in the studio processed shots (done indoors with rear-screen projection). But in all the outdoor shots of the car, the windshield is, for some strange reason, missing entirely. (00:24:20)

Jean G

The THRUSH Roulette Affair - S4-E7

Visible crew/equipment: When Solo and Coleman call Monica from the hotel, the shadow of the entire boom mike assembly is bobbing up and down on the wall above and behind them. (00:25:10)

Jean G

The 'J' for Judas Affair - S4-E3

Factual error: Apparently, U.N.C.L.E. bullets can do 180s. Illya fires at the fleeing Thrush limo from behind, and without hitting any of its other (closed) windows, somehow puts two bullets through the car's front windshield. (00:48:20)

Jean G

The 'J' for Judas Affair - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: At the airfield, Illya stands near a bright red fuel truck marked "FLAMMABLE." Every time the shot changes, his position shifts from standing to the right of the final E to blocking it altogether. (00:23:35)

Jean G

The Deep Six Affair - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: The black Cadillac that pulls up to the guard house is a standard 60s Caddy with 4 doors, 2 bench seats and 4 passengers that we can see. But in the interior shot, there are 7 passengers sitting in a limo-sized Cadillac with a 3rd bench seat and 6 doors. (00:38:20)

Jean G

The Maze Affair - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: The antenna on the radio Solo steals from Febray keeps changing lengths between shots, even though he hasn't touched it. (00:44:20)

Jean G

The Prince of Darkness Affair (2) - S4-E5

Revealing mistake: The same extra - a lady in a green dress - who passed Solo twice in Part 1, is sitting behind Illya in the theatre here in Part 2. This lady certainly gets around. (00:26:15)

Jean G

The Seven Wonders of the World Affair (2) - S4-E16

Visible crew/equipment: When Solo is being marched out to face the firing squad, the shadows of the camera crew are captured twice on the white pillars surrounding Kingsley's swimming pool. (00:20:15)

Jean G

The 'J' for Judas Affair - S4-E3

Revealing mistake: During the foot-chase through Tenza HQ, the Thrush gunman, with Illya in hot pursuit, races around a hallway corner. As Illya runs into the shot, the gunman's shadow reappears on the back wall, revealing the fact that the actor has stopped and is standing back there. Next shot, though, he's running down another corridor and through a door. (00:14:35)

Jean G

The Prince of Darkness Affair (1) - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: When Solo and Illya explore the ruined African village, Solo's collar and tie are open and loose in close-ups, but buttoned and pulled up tight in full shots. (00:01:30)
