Happy No. 97th birthday Norman Felton

Today, April 29, is the 97th birthday of Norman Felton, the executive producer of The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

Last year, we had a post that included links to a Felton interview on the origins of U.N.C.L.E. He worked, for a short while, with Ian Fleming, to bring U.N.C.L.E. to television before Fleming bolted from the project, not wanting to alienate James Bond producers Albert R. Broccoli and Harry Saltzman.

It’s also worth nothing how Mr. Felton has outlived so many of his U.N.C.L.E. contemporaries, including Sam Rolfe (developer and first-season producer, 1924-1993); Irv Pearberg (associate producer, late second season through conclusion of the series, 1925-2008); Alan Caillou (writer first and second seasons, 1914-2006); David Victor (producer and supervising producer, second and third seasons, 1910-1989); and Mort Abrhams (production executive, producer, second season, 1916-2009); and Jerry Goldsmith (composer, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Theme, 1929-2004).
