GET SMART: SHANGHAI A GO GO

The Watusi, The Twist...The Karate Chop? Secret Agents 86 and 99 are assigned to protect the princess, Ingrid, from harm in this season one episode of Get Smart. Ingrid proves to be quite a handful, ditching Max's plans to keep her safe (and cultured), to follow her youthful lust for dancing. The episode culminates at the Shanghai A Go Go, where our agents defeat The Claw and his henchmen with freestyle, chopping action. "The Diplomat's Daughter" aired in September, 1965. The Princess was played by Inger Stratton, who also made appearances on The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Hogan's Heroes, and Amos Burke, Secret Agent.
