Here's a newspaper from the opening teleplay of the 5th and final season of Get Smart. To me, it looks like the guy in the phone booth in the left picture is not Max.

Plus, the guy on the left is holding the phone in his left hand while the guy on the right it's in his right hand

From a fan-made Outer Limits episode using a deservedly forgotten 1958 movie The Hideous Sun Demon. The best part of the movie, for me, was at the very end, with glimpses of oil pumps -- presumably filmed cheaply, on location in an LA suburb. Though I don't remember it, at about the same time, when I was a wee tyke, and my family lived in Coalinga, California, my dad and I used to walk over to "see the pumps" at the end of our street. The movie isn't much like an OL show, notably lacking the "awe and mystery" it could conjure up, and featuring a sequence with the leading man picking up a woman at a bar and taking her to the beach that is nothing like an Outer Limits passage.
