Spies - Individual Agents

Illya Kuryakin - Top Russian agent for the United Network for Law and Enforcement [a.k.a. U.N.C.L.E.] on the spy adventure THE MAN FROM UNCLE/NBC/1965-68.

David McCallum as Illya Kuryakin - THE MAN FROM UNCLE

Illya Kuryakin (David McCallum) is blond, single, introverted but very adept at thwarting enemy agents from T.H.R.U.S.H. When possible, Illya wore a turtleneck sweater instead of a shirt and tie like most of the spies at U.N.C.L.E. His partner is the suave, ladie’s man, Napoleon Solo.

Illya and his partner, enter U.N.C.L.E. headquarters through a secret entrance in Del Floria's Tailor Shop. Their standard issued firearm is a Walther P-38. They both reported to Mr. Alexander Waverly, the head of U.N.C.L.E.

Musical Soundtrack - THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E.

TRIVIA NOTE: After Illya left U.N.C.L.E., he became a celebrated fashion designer [as revealed on the 1983 TV movie reunion The Return of the Man from U.N.C.L.E.: The Fifteen Years Later Affair.

A poster of Illya in his turtleneck holding his U.N.C.L.E. issued firearm became a best selling poster in the 1960s long before the Farah Fawcett [Charlie’s Angels] poster craze began a decade later.

Years later, David McCallum played the role of coroner Dr. Donald 'Ducky' Mallard, on the military drama NAVY NCIS/CBS/2003+.
