Seven Degrees of Sherlock Holmes - the Man from Uncle edition - Robert Vaughn

With the death of the last of the Magnificent Seven (1960), Robert Vaughn was best known for his time as an international spy in The Man from Uncle. For those of us in the 60's not mature enough for Bond, this was a great show.

Robert Vaughn 1932 - 2016

He had a very (very) small role in The Ten Commandments (1956)

Which we all know starred Charlton Heston who was in many Sherlock Holmes stories.

Charlton Heston (1923-2008)

Heston was Sherlock Holmes in stage and in film in The Crucifer of Blood.

Howard, thanks for the additional info.
Robert Vaughn at least once played Holmes on The Hollywood Palace.
Vaughn was Holmes, Phyllis Diller was Moriarty and Charlie Manna played Watson.

Bringing Robert, as Howard suggests, within One Degree of Sherlock Holmes.


  1. Perhaps you would consider Robert Vaughn a first degree Sherlock Holmes. In a skit on "The Hollywood Palace" (1968) Vaughn played Sherlock Holmes, with Charlie Manna as Dr. Watson and Phyllis Diller as Dr. Moriarty. Photo of Vaughn as SH is in:
