The Second Character thread got me to thinking about Illya Kuryakin, and I started looking up clips. This is one of them. Silly but fun.

What would Mr Waverly say?

I don't believe I've ever actually seen it. Now I think I've been missing something.

It was as major a part of my childhood as Dr. Kildare, Bewitched Batman and The Flying Nun.

Robert Vaughan and "Ilya Kuryakin" were incredibly alluring--and then Stefanie Powers was the Girl from U.N.C.L.E.

"What would Mr Waverly say?"

You mean Leo G Carroll? He was over a barrel...

It's a campfest, Reg. Illya and Napoleon were always being knocked out, kidnapped, tied up, tortured...this is a better made clip, to the tune of Lehrer's

Like PJ said - a major part of my young teenage yrs. I used to think that you could actually go into a tailor's shop and -pffft - down to UNCLE headquarters. Ilya, my dream boy (I was so jealous when his character had a love interest with Jill Ireland)....(he was in line in front of me about a yr. ago in a Food Emporium - extremely introverted..thank g-d no one bothered him)
And that theme music - the best EVER for a TV show!

The only good thing about insomnia is being up to catch Man From U.N.C.L.E reruns on METV at 4 AM.

I watched reruns as a kid--big crush on Illya. MeTV, which we just started getting in Canada, is currently airing it at some weird time... Similarly, The Wild Wild West strikes me now as surprisingly homoerotic. Or maybe I am just seeing what I wanna see.

*edit* I see Joe mentioned the MeTV thing.

Eric, Robert Conrad was a major crush for me. Especially, when he had his shirt off. Which was quite often on that show. Also, don't laugh, I used to have a thing for Lyle Wagoner from the Carol Burnett Show. Especially when he was shirtless.

Don't mean to hijack, but he was hot!


You mean something like this?

Lyle was one of the first celebs (well maybe the second- after Bert Reynolds) to do A CENTERFOLD.

I liked Wild Wild West too but there was something so sexy about Illya and Robert Vaughn. I guess I need to tell the younger kids that the U.N.C.L.E guys were the height of male beauty at the time AND fashion plates. Everything on that show was the ultimate in modern design.

Ha, was just going to post that pic for Art. I don't reallyget the love--and I tend to go for those 60s/70s kinda guys, though I do get the Conrad love.

I had a crush on the guy in MR. LUCKY. And also Ross Martin on WILD, WILD WEST.

Hetero or Homo, they milked Conrad's sex appeal on WWW. Shirtless for no reason, and extremely tight pants. It was obvious Jim West was presented differently than most guys on TV.

His sex appeal antithesis was Dr. Smith on Lost In Space. As a friend said, "Even as a kid, you knew Dr. Smith didn't act like your dad."

My father was in a production of THE FANTASTICKS in 1982 with 50-year old Robert Conrad as El Gallo and 21-year old Megan Mulally as Luisa. Mr. Conrad was the "star", and of course, was the weak link in the production. Yes, they dressed him in those same high-waisted, super tight pants from WWW.
