20 Cult Favorite Movies That Were Supposed To Be TV Shows First
To Trap A Spy & The Spy With My Face
Before The Man From U.N.C.L.E. was a Guy Ritchie film starring most of the world’s hottest men, it was an uber-popular television series in the 1960s. Its spin-offs included another short-lived television project called The Girl from U.N.C.L.E. (we appreciate the early attempt at gender equality), a comic book series, and a couple of movies. To Trap A Spy and The Spy With My Face were set in The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’s TV universe, but both films were originally conceived as episodes for the television series. Due to its crossover success in America, MGM would film extra footage with added sex, violence, sub-pots, and guest stars which were added to existing plots and re-edited for film.
