Robert Vaughn, 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' star, dies at 83

Robert Vaughn, who starred as Napoleon Solo on "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." from 1964-68, died on Friday of acute leukemia, his manager Matthew Sullivan told Variety. He was 83.

The James Bond-influenced "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.," in which Vaughn's Solo and David McCallum's Illya Kuryakin battled the evil forces of T.H.R.U.S.H. around the globe (thanks to the glories of stock footage), was quite the pop-culture phenomenon in the mid-1960s, even as the show's tone wavered from fairly serious to cartoonish and back again over its four seasons.
