Happy Birthday Dave

Musician and actor. David McCallum born in Glasgow, Scotland on this date in 1933.


Combine the spy-against-spy Cold War era with '60s cool and the result is the trend-setting series that became a cultural touchstone .... and generated 8 Theatrical Movies derived from and expanding upon key episodes.

Napoleon Solo (Robert Vaughn) and Illya Kuryakin (David McCallum) are intrepid U.N.C.L.E. agents who maintain tongue-in-cheek style as they confront the deadly schemes of THRUSH in the U.S. or anywhere else spy chief Mr. Waverly (Leo G. Carroll) sends his two top operatives.

Guest stars caught up in the globetrotting intrigue include Joan Crawford, Janet Leigh, Vera Miles, Leslie Nielsen, Jack Palance, Eleanor Parker, Telly Savalas, Rip Torn and more.
