Memories of exile: Watching ‘The man from U.N.C.L.E.’

We say happy #90 to David McCallum, who was born in the UK on this day in 1933. Many of us remember him as Illya Kuryakin in “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” He was Napoleon Solo’s partner in the series.

Back in the early days of “el exilio,” we watched a lot of TV to learn English and get acquainted with the new country and language. One of our favorites was “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” We learned quickly that UNCLE was not Tio, but rather some multinational anti-crime organization.
