Happy 79th birthday, Robert Vaughn

How the time flies. Nov. 22 is the 79th birthday of Robert Vaughn, the original Man From U.N.C.L.E.

It was 48 years ago, while filming the U.N.C.L.E. pilot, that the crew took time off to celebrate the star’s 31st birthday when news arrived of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Not the way to celebrate one’s birthday. Hopefully for Mr. V. the succeeding birthdays have been (or in the case of this year, will be) much more pleasant.

A lot of U.N.C.L.E. fans (us especially) were disappointed to hear the latest attempt to create a film version of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. crash and burn. But we’ll always have the original portrayal and that’s just fine.
