THE " MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E." 1964

This was a TV show that began in 1964. It starred Robert Vaughn and David McCallum. McCallum acted the part of "Illya Kuryakin". In real life David was married to Jill Ireland. She divorced him and was then married to Charles Bronson until her death in 1990. Charles had her cremated and her ashes were inserted in a cane that he used until his death in 2003. The cane was buried along side of him in his casket. True love.  This is the six inch plastic replica that was sold in local department stores of "Illya". 

Trivia:  A humpback whale can eat 5,000 fish in a single sitting. (Who knew they could sit?)

Did You Know?  When their dog Bertie started walking strangely, a couple from Essex, England, took him to a veterinarian who found that nine golf balls were lodged in Bertie's stomach.
