The FBI/Octopussy/You Only Live Twice mashup

This just popped up on YouTube. Louis Jourdan, 15 years before he played the villain in Octopussy, played the head of a spy ring in the fourth-season opening episode of The FBI, Wind It Up and It Betrays You. By this stage, the series, starring Efrem Zimbalist Jr., was an anchor of ABC’s Sunday night schedule. Jourdan had also played a villain in a second-season episode.

One of his accomplices is played by Nancy Kovack, who was a femme fatale in the first Matt Helm movie, The Silencers. The plot was by Harold Jack Bloom, who contributed “additional story material” for You Only Live Twice and wrote the second episode of The Man From U.N.C.L.E., The Iowa-Scuba Affair.

Anyway, you may want to take a look. Given it’s on YouTube, you never know when it may get pulled.
