Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Helicopter Spies is a Man From UNCLE "feature film"--actually spliced together from a two-part adventure from the UNCLE TV series, then shown theatrically overseas. The Men from UNCLE, as always, are Napoleon Solo (Robert Vaughn), Ilya Kuryakin (David McCallum) and Alexander Waverly (Leo G. Carroll). This time they're dispatched to a faraway fortress in the deserts of Iran, where dwells megalomaniac Luther Sebastian (Bradford Dillman). Under the guise of the serene head of a religious cult, Sebastian has developed a nuclear prism, designed to zero in "death rays" upon unsuspecting aircraft. Helicopter Spies was originally telecast as "The Prince of Darkness Affair" on October 2 and 9, 1967.
