Robert Vaughn Alert

Recommended Posts

We get a rarity at Noon today - just an hour plus from now.

The hit series The Man from U.N.C.L.E was so popular in the 60's that it put no less than 8 movies on cinema screens.

However, the reputedly best of the 8 was never released to cinema screens in North America. Only in Europe. The reasoning by the executives was that that one was pretty much a direct copy of a 2-part episode of the series and it was unlikely fans would want to pay for something they'd already seen for free. Reasonable thinking.

Well, TCM has it for us - The Spy in the Green Hat  (1966). It's the only U.N.C.L.E. movie I haven't see - so thank you, TCM.

In addition to the usual guys - McCallum, Vaughn and Leo G, there's Janet Leigh and Jack Palance in this one.

Vaughn was a prolific actor - he never stopped working. Check out his IMDb page - he has an incredible list of entries.

Robert Vaughn's performance in The Young Philadelphians (1959) is one of the great supporting performances, for which he was nominated for an Oscar.

Very fine performance by Robert Vaughn in The Young Philadelphians,    but having only one-arm gives one a leg up when it comes to being nominated.

Oh baby this is El Stinkeroo! I'm glad I DVRd this little gem because I fell asleep during llya Kuryakin torture scene. 

It starts out promising enough in such exotic locale as the Pacific Ocean Park (looking worse for wear). Then off to sunny "Sicily" which looks more like further south on the Cal coast with surfers in the background. Note the guy in the shot. No idea what he was doing hiding behind the Rover as it pulls away.

Later a geriatric squad of Mafioso are forced from retirement to find Solo for a shotgun wedding with a distant, and rather cute,  relative of theirs. The movie is an awful mess, I love it! If I can stay awake.

I still have my Wild Bill Hickok lunch box, scratched up and long filled with miscellaneous nails and screws. The thermos disappeared a long time ago. I was surprised to see it up for sale on ebay for $200.

 Nowadays they pack real guns with their lunch.

Nowadays? Every pickup truck in the parking lot at my high school had at least one in a gun rack.

But nowadays "real" isn't  a requirement to go full moron. An image no matter how amateurish is sufficient, and what EVER you do don't do this. . . .

It's WAYYYY more powerful than the single barrel model and will result in a county wide lock down!

Here's a couple of videos you  might like.

 

Moe Howard,

Thank you!

According to the Web, POP had a relatively brief existence, 1958 to 1967. So I was a preteen when I visited it. The only memory of it that I have is King Neptune. Visitors would enter POP by going "underwater" and walking through Neptune's Kingdom, eventually encountering The King himself. For a small child, the experience was not a little bit frightening -- at least for me. Sad that POP had such a short, troubled run.

Growing up in L.A. during the 1960s, residents were blessed with several thrilling amusement parks, besides "The Magic Kingdom." My parents took my siblings and me to Knott's Berry Farm, Marineland, Jungleland, The Movieland Wax Museum (a particular favorite of mine),  Santa's Village, and of course, POP.

Good times!
