Synopsis

UNCLE agents Napoleon Solo, an American, and Illya Kuryakin, a Russian, are assigned to fly to Switzerland while guarding the combination to a vault in the Swiss Alps which holds the secret of a nuclear weapon powerful enough to destroy the world. Before the flight, THRUSH agent Serena lures Solo to her apartment, and there he is overpowered and his place on the plane is taken by a THRUSH agent who has been transformed by plastic surgery to look exactly like Solo. The impostor fools Illya but is nearly discovered when he does not recognize UNCLE agent Kittridge, whom he kills. He then obtains the combination to the vault. Arriving in Switzerland, Illya begins to be suspicious, and he makes his way to THRUSH headquarters. Meanwhile, Solo, who is being held prisoner in THRUSH headquarters, escapes after shooting THRUSH's leader Darius Two. Darius Two then pushes an "auto-destruct" button which blows up THRUSH headquarters, killing himself and most of the gang. The two Solos have a confrontation, and the real Solo is saved when Serena, taking sympathy on him, comes to his aid and shoots the impostor.
