Robert Vaughn Quotes:

Major Paul Kreuger: [to General von Brock over the phone asking for reinforcements] Herr General, your regrets will not save the bridge. The two panzer battalions might.

Robert Vaughn Facts
Both he and his "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." (1964) co-star David McCallum appeared in what is now considered a classic film directed by John Sturges which starred Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson and James Coburn: Vaughn appeared in The Magnificent Seven (1960), McCallum appeared in The Great Escape (1963)

Along with Eddie Velez ("Dishpan Frankie" Santana), has been called partially responsible for the premature cancellation of "The A-Team" (1983) & series finale December 30, 1986 just 12 episodes into season 5 of the show because most viewers could not accept the Team working for General Hunt Stockwell of the U.S. military (Vaughn), which they had been evading since 1972(!), instead of the Team remaining an independent entity tackling cases on a $10,000-per-job basis as they had in seasons 1-4.

Landed the central rôle of Steve Dallas in Sweet Smell of Success (1957) but was drafted into the Army before he could film any footage.
