As a kid I was a Man from U.N.C.L.E. fan. I loved that show. Napoleon Solo passed on today. Vaya Con Dios Mr. Vaughn.

Don't know that I ever watched it but I guess he was a legend.

He was a legendary Bad Movie Actor later in his career. Schlock "Masterpieces" like "Delta Force" and "Chud II". This is common in older actors. At least his presence was notable rather than boring. But he will live forever as The Man from U.N.C.L.E. And the gunslinger in "The Magnificent Seven".

Yeah, I liked that show, just watched the Magnificent Seven on on-demand as a matter of fact. The new one should be good but tough to beat Steve McQueen, Yul Brenner, Charles Bronson etc and of course Robert Vaughn. I'll have to watch the Kurosawa original one of these days too.

Seven Samurai. 3 1/2 hours. Not one second of boredom.
