A New Archive For UNCLE Scripts Is Up And Running!

I've been collecting copies of The Man From UNCLE scripts for a while now. I even managed to buy an original. On Facebook, Mike Thomas has created an archive so everyone can enjoy them. I was able to help him get started. It's growing almost on a daily basis as more folks come forward to add to his collection. What fascinates me are the titles most episodes were meant to be named and the teasers by Robert Vaughn for a lot of the first season eps. If you have an ep in PDF form that's not here and would like to add it to the collection, PM me and I will give it to Mike. Take a look at some of them and see how some eps strayed far from their scripts while others are to the letter. Enjoy!

These are in PDF formats.

Blast from the Past ---Wow

I have managed to download the files from Channel D on Yahoogroups although two years at the moment won't open [my husband thinks they may be corrupted]

But this was an actual conversation on December 29, 1999:

I always figured Donald Trump would be an ideal candidate for a top Thrush
guy. Now I'm convinced: has anyone seen the news? Trump is building this
huge tower right across the street from the UN, at the head of first
Avenue. The neighbors are up in arms. They can't understand why he's
doing it.

I can. UNCLE HQ is just down the block. What a great place for a Thrush
nice modern NY satrapy. The plot of Discoteque Aff with the office from
Hula Doll Aff. :)

Nah, Cindy. Just think, to be a top Thrush guy, you'd have to be totally
self-centered...um, okay. You'd have to be completely oblivious to the
needs of the community, er.... Ah, you'd have to be willing to exploit
those near and dear to you...hmmmm.

I think you might have something there....

Gee, I bet the new listening devices are sensitive enough to hear
everything that happens in the UN without him even leaving his office!
Someone get hold of Solo and Kuryakin. This dastardly plot must be
stopped!

Deb

Of course, Cindy. How very nefarious of them. They probably plan to hack into
the UNCLE computer system, too, a la Off Broadway Affair. Better alert Mr.
Waverly and get some agents on it right away.

Sounds like you're describing a Good American to me.

David, if you take one 'o' out of 'Good', you'll probably get close to
how Donald Trump thinks of himself.

Hmmmm. To all you writers out there, this sounds like a good place to
start a new robin! (Don't look at me - I only write emails!)
