WOULD YOU BELIEVE , A PILOT FILM FOR A HIT SERIES ?- GET SMART - NBC-TV - SEPT. 18,1965
What happens when you mix the exuberant,comedic lunacy of Mel Brooks with the sly, ironic sensibilities of Buck Henry, then add an accomplished, stand-up comedian like Don Adams and the aquiline beauty of Barbara Feldon? But wait, you still have to blend-in rapid-fire dialogue, high-quality production values,a memorable theme song and a fusillade of comic catch phrases that captivated a nation.
What do you get?
It was the hit, sixties spy spoof that left secret agents Bond, Flint and Solo out in the cold. Each week on NBC-TV ( and subsequently on CBS-TV), CONTROL Agent 86, Maxwell Smart, along with his favorite partner in espionage, the lovely Agent 99, and his exasperated Chief, saved the world from the villains,tyrants,and thugs who ran KAOS, a criminal cabal bent on global domination.
Here from the SNEAKY GUY 55 YOU TUBE site, is the pilot for GET SMART, which aired in Black & White on the PEACOCK Network on September 18, 1965. Enjoy!!!!
