Plot Overview

Solo discovers that a Nazi scientist is in league with THRUSH, and he and Illya follow the man and his cohorts to Italy, where they discover that wine distributor Louis Strago is a THRUSH leader and wants to use the scientist's machine to melt Greenland. Illya poses as a guard to get into Strago's lavish estate, while Napoleon, who has been found out, winds up being trapped under the rubble of a pizzeria after it has been blown up. A beautiful peasant girl rescues him from the rubble and nurses him back to health, but a misunderstanding results in a shotgun marriage between him and the girl, which he escapes. Napoleon and Illya then travel back to the States and to Strago's offices in Chicago, where he's planning to ship the missiles to Sicily. The girl's uncles, a trio of old-time gangsters, also show up in Chicago in search of Solo. They capture him, and this time, the marriage will go on...or Napoleon will be swimming with the fishes!
