Talking of Bond, of the plethora of spies that filled TV and movies in the 60s, there were three big names worth mentioning: James Bond of MI6, and Napoleon Solo and Ilya Kuryakin from UNCLE. They never met in the 60s, but in 1983, the TV movie The Return of The Man From UNCLE finally allowed Solo and Bond to meet (Kuryakin was elsewhere…). Here's that magic moment featuring the original actors: Robert Vaughn and… can you guess?

Yes, it's forgotten Bond George Lazenby from On Her Majesty's Secret Service (the one who got to marry Diana Rigg). Incidentally, Ian Fleming also created Napoleon Solo. Well, the name at least.
