I also had a childhood UNCLE crush on him.  

 

A role he played that always stuck with me was Gwyllm Griffiths in the Outer Limits episode, The Sixth Finger.

He aged very, very well. He didn't look different in NCIS than he did in U.N.C.L.E.

Enjoyed the 60's series.  Seemed like a nice guy.  A nice passing for a nice guy too.

I remember him well. R.I.P. to a man who handled the adversities and betrayal in his life with grace.

Super sad to hear this. Always loved him thru the years. 

 

I was nuts about Man From Uncle and Illya Kuryakin!  My girlfriend and I used to "play" Man From Uncle and used "Flair" pens as our "communicators".  OMG!  Well I was 10. 


 

Sorry to hear about David McCallum's passing.

 

@avid shopper  , I played The Man From U.N.C.L.E. too when I was a kid, using a pen as the communicator - it's nice to know others did that too.  "Open Channel D".
