Synopsis

Robert Vaughn: A Fortunate Life - An Autobiography by Robert Vaughn

At the height of his television fame on The Man From UNCLE, Robert Vaughn was one of Hollywood's most eligible bachelors, with countless adoring female fans. His affairs with famous celebrities, including Natalie Wood, made front-page news. But Vaughn is not just a handsome face - he is a talented stage, television and film actor. In this fascinating biography Vaughn recounts his memories of a golden era in Hollywood and the trials and tribulations of life as a successful actor, from hot dates, having an FBI file because of his anti-Vietnam stance, being caught up in the Russian invasion of Prague in 1968 while filming, to being attacked in a restaurant by drunk basketball fans. Vaughn befriended such luminaries as Bobby Kennedy and stars such as Jack Nicholson, met presidents at parties and had many adventures with celebrities past and present, from Elvis and Judy Garland to Steve McQueen and Elizabeth Taylor. This is his revealing and captivating story. Emmy-winning actor Robert Vaughn has portrayed five US Presidents and currently stars in BBC TV's Hustle. He has appeared in many films and appeared in several TV series, from the The Magnificent Seven and The Towering Inferno to The Protectors and the classic, The Man From UNCLE.
