A magnetic performer who was equally at home with heroes or heels, Robert Vaughn was a leading man and character actor whose five-decade career included such hit films as "The Magnificent Seven" (1960), "Bullitt" (1968) and "The Towering Inferno" (1974). His greatest successes, however, came on the small screen; first as the dashing Napoleon Solo in the runaway hit series "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." (NBC, 1964-68), and later, with an Emmy win for "Washington: Behind Closed Doors" (ABC, 1977) and numerous other miniseries and TV-movies. The quality of projects offered to Vaughn dropped off in the 1980s and 1990s, but he rebounded in 2004 with the UK series "Hustle" (BBC One, 2004-10), which afforded him a chance to once again display his considerable charm - an attribute that, in part, was the reason for his enduring popularity.
