It is with a great sadness that we report the death of actor Gene Barry today .
Although most well-known in the rest of the World as the suave Gentlemanly Amos Burke ( one-time Secret Agent himself , courtesy of the Spy - craze of the Sixties ) , he will be mostly remembered in France as the equally dashing Gene Bradley , from the excellent I.T.C vintage series ' The Adventurer ' , created by Dennis Spooner , prolific writer whose name is to be found in almost each and every Cult British TV series of the 1960s/70s...
( if there's ever been a Schizophenic series in the World - apart from ' The Prisoner ' , it is indeed that one : a main character playing a namesake Actor who's doing undercover missions for Her Majesty . Great plot indeed ! And note the initials of both actor & character...)
R.I.P Gene Barry
