Joan Collins and Pauline Collins star in Trailer and Poster for The Time of Their Lives

In 2015, Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel stuck two fingers up at the film industry with the Paolo Sorrentino directed Youth. It proved to the whole industry just because you’ve reached a certain age doesn’t mean you’ve lost your talent or appeal to the movie going public. In fact over the last few years we have seen actors such as Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman and Robert De Niro all prove they are all digging their heels in and not going anywhere.

Now it’s time for the ladies to get in on the act with Golden Globe-winner Dame Joan Collins – who we last saw make an appearance in last year’s Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie – Oscar nominee Pauline Collins (The Last Dragon Slayer, Albert Nobbs) and Italian heartthrob Franco Nero (Django, Django Unchained) all starring in the upcoming feel-good comedy, The Time of Their Lives

Robert Vaughn, Suave 'Man From U.N.C.L.E.,' Is Dead at 83

Robert Vaughn, Suave 'Man From U.N.C.L.E.,' Is Dead at 83
New York -- Robert Vaughn, the debonair, Oscar-nominated actor whose many film roles were eclipsed by his hugely popular turn in television’s The Man From U.N.C.L.E., has died. He was 83.

Vaughn died Friday morning after a brief battle with acute leukemia, according to his manager, Matthew Sullivan.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. was an immediate hit, particularly with young people, when it debuted on NBC 1964. It was part of an avalanche of secret agent shows (I Spy, Mission: Impossible, Secret Agent), spoofs (Get Smart), books (The Spy Who Came in From the Cold) and even songs (Secret Agent Man) inspired by the James Bond films.

Vaughn’s urbane superspy Napoleon Solo teamed with Scottish actor David McCallum’s Illya Kuryakin, a soft-spoken, Russian-born agent.

The pair, who had put aside Cold War differences for a greater good, worked together each week for the mysterious U.N.C.L.E. (United

Tributes pour in for Robert Vaughn
Stars from the entertainment world have paid tribute to the TV and film actor who died on Friday from leukaemia. He was 83.

Vaughn was best known for playing the spy Napoleon Solo in the 1960s TV spy series The Man From Uncle. His co-star David McCallum, who played Illya Kuryakin in the series, told TVLine.com that he was “devastated”.

“Robert and I worked together for many years and losing him is like losing a part of me,” said McCallum. “My deepest sympathies go out to Linda and the Vaughn family.”

Director Edgar Wright was one of many from the entertainment world to take to Twitter.

“Rip Napoleon Solo!” he wrote. “The great Robert Vaughn was the coolest guy on TV when I was a kid. Superb in Bullitt, The Magnificent Seven & many more.”

Former 007 actor Roger Moore said, “Sorry to hear the news about Robert Vaughn.”

Actor, writer and comedian Stephen Fry had this to say:

Actor Robert Vaughn Dead At Age 83; Oscar Nominee And Star Of "The Man From U.N.C.L.E."

This Article Has Been Updated

By Lee Pfeiffer

The past year has been an especially harsh one for the entertainment industry in terms of well-known personalities who have passed away. Today's news that actor Robert Vaughn has died hits Cinema Retro especially hard and this writer in particular. He died from a battle with leukemia and was surrounded by his family in his final moments. I first met Robert in 1983 at a press conference in New York in which he and David McCallum promoted their forthcoming TV movie "Return of The Man From U.N.C.L.E." I've remained friends with them ever since and shared many an enjoyable conversation. Robert was an early supporter of Cinema Retro and contributed to numerous issues, most recently issues #33 and #34 in which he was interviewed by writer Steve Rubin about the dramatic occurrences in making the 1969 WWII film "The Bridge at Remagen

R.I.P. Robert Vaughn (1932 – 2016)

American actor Robert Vaughn – best known for his role as Napoleon Solo in The Man from U.N.C.L.E. – has passed away aged 83 following a battle with leukemia.

Born in New York City, Vaughn made his acting debut in 1955 with a guest role in Medic, the first of over two hundred TV roles, which included the hit 60s spy series The Man from U.N.C.L.E., 1970s detective series The Protectors, and the 80s classic The A-Team. In more recent years, he appeared in the British drama Hustle, along with the soap opera Coronation Street.

In addition to his TV work, Vaughn also appeared in a number of notable feature films, including an Academy Award-nominated turn in The Young Philadelphians, as well as The Magnificent Seven, Bullitt, The Towering Inferno, S.O.B. and Superman III.

Robert Vaughn, ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ Star, Dies at 83

Robert Vaughn, ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ Star, Dies at 83
Robert Vaughn, who starred as Napoleon Solo on TV’s “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” from 1964-68, died Friday morning of acute leukemia, his manager Matthew Sullivan told Variety. He was 83.

Vaughn began undergoing treatment for the illness this year on the East Coast.

The James Bond-influenced “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,” in which Vaughn’s Solo and David McCallum’s Illya Kuryakin battled the evil forces of T.H.R.U.S.H. around the globe (thanks to the glories of stock footage), was quite the pop-culture phenomenon in the mid-1960s, even as the show’s tone wavered from fairly serious to cartoonish and back again over its four seasons.

It spawned a spinoff, “The Girl From U.N.C.L.E.,” starring Stefanie Powers, as well as a few feature adaptations during the run of the TV series — “One Spy Too Many,” “One of Our Spies Is Missing,” and “The Karate Killers” — that starred Vaughn and McCallum.
