Man From UNCLE Tidbits

In response to the huge success of the James Bond films, the U.S. entered the spy game with The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Starring Robert Vaughn as the dashing Napolean Solo and a Scot, David McCallum as Russian Illya Kuryakin, the show had an actual connection to Bond.

Iam Fleming who wrote the Bond books had a character named Mr. Solo in “Goldfinger.” Although a bad guy in the original book, Fleming gave producer Norman Felton permission to use the name.

The U.N.C.L.E. spies had very different personalities. Solo was outgoing and sophisticated. Kuryakin was thoughtful and quiet.

The head of the U.N.C.L.E. secret New York office was Mr. Waverly (Leo G. Carroll). His assignments most often involved fighting the evil organization, THRUSH.

During the run of the show, Girl From UNCLE debuted. Starring Stephanie Powers as April Dancer, the show only lasted a year. It was THAT bad.

Passings

Leo G. Carroll died in 1972 of cancer.

RECENT NOTES:
Did you ever think that Duckie the Medical Examiner on NCIS looked familar?
Yes,it’s David McCallum all grown up.
I guess he just can’t get away from shows with initials in the title!
