GEORGE LAZENBY'S RETURN AS JAMES BOND...
In 1983, The MAN From U.N.C.L.E. returned in
a TV movie called 'The FIFTEEN-YEARS-LATER
AFFAIR'. ROBERT VAUGHN reprised his star role of
suave NAPOLEON SOLO, as did DAVID McCALLUM
as sidekick ILYA KURYAKIN. However, there was a little
surprise in that GEORGE LAZENBY also turned up as
'J.B.' - trying to sound a bit like SEAN CONNERY
if my aged ears aren't playing tricks on me.
That means there were three actors playing 007
that year - MOORE in OCTOPUSSY, Connery in
NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN, and Lazenby on the
telly. In case you're wondering what the connection is,
JAMES BOND creator IAN FLEMING also came
up with the name of Napoleon Solo.
Watch the clip and have some fun!
