Whether you’ve just seen The Man from U.N.C.L.E. remake with Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer or are an old school fan, Warner Bros has just released the original films via their Digital HD.
The films are created from patch-jobs and extra footage shot for two-art episodes. They were designed to expand the stories and often included elements that were seen as too violent or racy for primetime television in the day.
Some of the guest stars in these films include:
Academy Award winner Jack Palance and Joan Crawford, Emmy Award winners Telly Savalas, Maurice Evans & Bradford Dillman, Oscar nominees Eleanor Parker, Rip Torn and Joan Blondell, as well as Vera Miles, Herbert Lom, Jill Ireland, Carol Lynley, Kim Darby, Terry-Thomas, Dorothy Provine, “Star Trek” star James Doohan and “James Bond” luminaries Curt Jurgens and Luciana Paluzzi. The late Yvonne Craig appears in two of the films.
You can now download the films from Amazon and iTunes.
