|This Screening is part of event: QT6
And so begins QT6: Quentin Tarantino's intimate gathering of hardcore film geeks to watch obscure, interesting, and/or badass movies. Tonight was Secret Agent night, showing two Robert Vaughn spy pictures.
This was, according to Quentin, a 2-hour episode of the show The Man from U.N.C.L.E. beefed up with 10 more minutes and released as a film. Since it's TV, and 60s TV at that, the budget was miniscule enough to make this hilariously bad. Shots of Griffith observatory and Mulholland drive doubling for the swiss alps, awkward editing, and a cave matte painting so bad it looks like it belongs in a cartoon are stand-out memories. There's also the peculiar but awesome habit Robert Vaughn has of falling into a woman's bosom every time he's knocked out or faints. All very funny moments, supplemented by superb trailers courtesy of the Alamo beforehand and QT's masterful introduction.
